“Some people have it tough to begin with. Then others make their lives even tougher for no good reason. Fifth-grader Brian Hickman has cerebral palsy. Inspired by his mother, Adriana, he doesn’t let it keep him down. His resilience has recently been tested. One of the things Brian loves to do is dance, and he spent weeks preparing for a talent show at his elementary school. Then the school said no. He wanted to dance to ‘We Shine,’ a contemporary Christian song that mentions Jesus. In accordance with the school district, administrators told him he couldn’t use it. Too offensive.” (11/12/21)
