Seriously, this kid is incredible

One of the most fun things I've been able to do lately is meet this girl:

For months, Chelsee Caskey, 18, went to school in a wheelchair, smiling as if nothing had happened. But most days, she went home and cried until she fell asleep.

She spent more than a month in hospitals. She spent even longer trying to ease back into her old life.

Wednesday night, she graduated from Lincoln High School. After a year that changed everything, she was simply happy.
