Did You See The Heartwarming Bismarck Story Picked Up By CBS?
We may be currently living in uncertain times, but one thing is for certain - The Bismarck Demons are showing our community (and the world) the true meaning of loving our neighbors.
Did you see what North Dakota story CBS News picked up? A few weeks ago, you may remember reading about a Bismarck high schooler named Riley Fogarty. He and his fraternal twin sister were crowned Bismarck Demons' Homecoming King and Queen. Well, their story has gone viral. Now, grab the nearest box of tissues and read the full heartwarming original story here.
Did I mention that CBS News just did a story on Riley and his twin, Ellie? The story was covered on CBS Evening News with Norah O'Donnell. Check out the Homecoming King and Queen's interview with Norah O'Donnell below:
Let me warn you, you may want to grab another tissue.*
This is a story we needed and it happened right in our community! Ellie told CBS's Norah O'Donnell that her brother - who has Autism - has taught people about accepting others who may be different. And Riley clearly has made a positive impact on his classmates.
I remember being a teenager, and how exciting events like Homecoming were. And winning the title of Homecoming King or Queen would be an incredible way to start off a new school year. Congratulations to Riley and Ellie Fogarty on their crowning achievements!
The adults of the world could definitely learn a lesson in acceptance and love from Riley, Ellie, and the Bismarck Demons!
