Description

While the seniors danced at Prom Night 2001 in Hoisington, Kansas—a town of about 3,000—a tornado hit the town, destroying about a third of it. When they emerged from the dance, they discovered what had happened, and in the weeks that followed, they tried to explain to themselves why the tornado hit where it did. Plus other stories that happen on Prom Night.

I forced myself to listen to this, but as someone who really wanted to go but didn't get to, it was pretty triggering 😛

You know you know you know you know. I couldn’t listen to that guy and girl talk. Every other word was “you know”.

It went to high school during this time period and it made me realize how stupid I probably was back in the day. 😶
