Given the amount of time people spend on social media, you can’t avoid all the photos of couples sharing their engagement shots through a million different Internet outlets. Yes, we’re all happy for them, but at some point they just become a little bit boring and cliché.
For one single San Francisco writer, David Sikorski, it got to be a little bit too much.

When Ben Moser was in the 4th grade, he made a very serious promise to his mom after attending his cousin’s prom walk: When he grew up, he was going to ask his friend Mary Lapkowicz to prom.
Ben and Mary, who has Down syndrome, shared a really special bond in those days, their fourth grade teacher told The Patriot-News —
He watched over her constantly. If she was looking like she wasn’t having fun, he would go over and talk to her. He would pull her in to what ever activity they were doing. He just always watched out for her.
In 6th grade, Mary moved to another district and attended Central Dauphin high school where her father, Tom, teaches math, and Ben remained at Susquehanna.
