As a student, graduating is more than just fulfilling your life’s dream. It is not only about finishing school and starting your dream job to earn money. It is achieving your parents’ dreams to finally see you marching, wearing your toga. After all the sacrifices that you make, you can finally say that every sweat and tears are worth it.
For parents, one of the biggest and grandest dreams that will come true for them is to see their children marching for their graduation. Nothing is better than witnessing them finally graduate after several years of studying hard. It is like seeing everything that you worked hard on.
Unfortunately, not all parents are meant to see their children graduate and bid farewell to school life.
In a viral Facebook post, Yssa Llaban Guy-ab broke the hearts not only of parents but also students and teachers when she posted a photo of her while wearing her toga in front of her mother’s casket. Yssa was smiling happily since she knows that she achieved her mother’s dream for her.
The viral photo did not come with a long story or caption as it only says “graduate nako Ma!” but it never fails to break the heart of many Filipinos. Although the mother cannot celebrate with her daughter anymore, everyone can see and feel how hard they worked for her daughter’s education.
Consolation From Netizens
Netizens were saddened by the tragedy behind the picture and showered Yssa with many encouraging words and condolences. Some said that the mother will surely be very proud if she is still with them. A lot of people believe that she is not alone in her journey and that she is surely watching them from above.
