CBS: Their promposal video went viral, but their friendship goes much further

At Mountain Heritage High School in Burnsville, North Carolina, Rachel Newberry caught Ben Robinson completely off guard. He was a little surprised, a little shocked.

Ben, who has Down syndrome, had no idea Rachel was going to ask him to senior prom. Every year we see stories like this — a typical kid inviting a special needs kid to prom. Stories of kindness. But what makes this so different is that Rachel wasn’t trying to be kind.
