“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it,

bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944);
French Author

If I had not known better, I would have thought I was in a department store warehouse. No, but this was a school gymnasium. There I stood with on April 11, 2014  witnessing many happy parents and their daughters saunter out of Hill House High School with stunning prom dresses and accessories only if they desired-at no cost! The beauty of this afternoon was seeing the apparent joy on everyone's face, not to overlook the fact that parents didn't have to spend exorbitant amounts on prom expenses. This was a win win event!  Find a prom dress, try it on if you wish, claim it and leave with a smile. The pressure of purchasing and acquiring a prom dress was no longer a factor! Thanks to the ingenuity of Ms. Khalilah Abdulrahim good things are occuring for many young people in Connecticut. She truly has a heart for New Haven's young people and assisting them in making their dreams happen. She realizes the importance of them achieving scholastic excellence in pursuit of brighter futures. She's birthed Project Hope, and endeavors to turn dreams into possibilities! In my estimation Khalilah's truly a super star! Learn about her amazing endeavors and her circle of supporters for good which has rippled throughout this community-"Say Yes To The Dress” what a novel idea!  Go right ahead Khalilah and move to the front of the class. https://articles.courant.com/2014-04-11/community/hcrs-87733-statewide-20140409_1_dresses-project-hope-hillhouse-high-school 

I thank God for witnessing such a power packed day!
