They love the way I walk
Cause I walk with a vengeance
And they listen to me when I talk
Cause I ain’t pretending
It took a while now I understand
This where I’m going
I know what I want and who I am…
— From Beyoncé and Grown Woman
Last night, there was a virtual invasion of prom goers in Oklahoma City’s Bricktown district. Generation Y drunk on their own coming-of-age.
Rising up out of the glittery sea of mint-green strapless dresses and bejeweled side buns was a young woman in jeans and a baseball shirt walking happily down Oklahoma Avenue. I called out to her, “Beyonce.”

And, she immediately turned to see who it was, and with a big smile on her face she graciously posed for my camera. Some people seem born for greatness.
