When we graduated from junior high, we were asked to select a song for our send off. The vote was “We are the Champions” Queen. It was rejected. Because of AIDS and gay and so on. It was left at that. No song replaced it. It just was what it was. At the “picnic” or whatever, this great kid came in with a boombox and blasted the song! Everyone cheered and clapped. He got thrown out. The thing I remember most about that moment is, nobody really knew he was. He was one of those kids the “popular” kids look down on. But, in that moment, he was a hero. And til this day, I remember him.
