We are where nostalgia lives

Joe Angel, an 18 year-old Texas high school senior, decided to take an unexpected date to prom this year: High school senior prom is a special time for many seniors as they near the end of grade school.

Joe took his mother, Vanessa, to prom at Collegiate High School on Friday — officially keeping a promise he made to her when he was in middle school since his mother missed her own prom when she was in school.

“My mom had me at 17, so she didn’t get to experience prom,” the teen told Fox News on Tuesday. “I just really wanted to take her.”

Ahead of the big night, Joe helped his mother pick out a prom dress and also bought her a corsage. He even “picked her up like a real date and walked in arm-in-arm with her.” The rest of the night included typical prom activities like dancing and taking an abundance of pictures.

“We danced and danced — it was great,” Vanessa said.

“Sometimes people don’t know the sacrifices us mothers make. We just hope that it does get seen, and I am so glad my son did see my sacrifice and wanted to give back. It meant the world to me,” she added.

The 18-year-old “can’t believe” his pictures have garnered so much attention. As of Tuesday afternoon, the photos had over 160,000 likes and 26,000 retweets.

Joe, who said taking his mom to the prom was the “least he could do,” said Vanessa “loved and really appreciated the night.” He hopes that his two younger brothers — ages 17 and 8, respectively — may consider doing the same one day.

“This is something that will last in her memory forever,” said Joe. “It really means so much [to me] to give that opportunity to her.”
