Prom night is a very important event for every teenager who is only a few steps from graduating and becoming an adult. Most girls are very invested in finding the perfect dress for this night that will stay on their hearts and minds forever. Boys are equally nervous and excited about the event without showing it as much as the girls. Usually, people arrive at the prom in cars or bikes or buses. What we haven’t seen up until this point is someone arriving inside a casket just to show how much they want to study and become morticians.
Alexandrea Clark went at her prom lying in a casket
The 19-year-old student made this unique entrance for Americus Sumter High School’s prom.
She has always wanted to be a mortician
This was her way to announce to everyone what she wants to do in the future.
This was no joke or fun for her
She knew for a very long time that she wanted to be a funeral director.
Many people doubted Alexandrea’s claims about wanting to be a mortician
However, her volunteer work at the local funeral homes proves that she is really passionate about this field of work.
Many people rushed to judge her
Some people judged her for turning death into a game and fun event.
The negative comments went on and on
Another user judged this girl’s mother for not keeping her from doing this stunt.
Of course, there were people who didn’t take this as seriously
Another woman seemed to be more understaning especially takinh into consideration the fact that Alexandrea wants to be a mortician.
Here’s Alexandrea posing next to the hearse
I get why people get mad with this girl’s action, but what I don’t get is why they get so hostile towards her. She is not mocking death or those who have suffered from it. To her, this was symbol of her future life, which is going to be surrounded with too many caskets and hearses.
