When we attend graduations we sometimes experience tears of joy because of many memories that light up the corners of our mind. Maybe we are reminded of our own graduations, the love and sacrifice of our parents, and the many years of toil and effort. Maybe then we realize the truth of the saying: no pain no gain, no cross no victor
But really it’s the love that was behind it all that touches our emotion as we see those loving parents shedding tears of joy at graduation time of their children. Then we remember that once upon a time our own parents did sacrifice and dream for our own success and achievement at graduation time. We pray for those loved ones, God reward them!
