It was the first time I experienced a ceremony where participants were drenched yet unfazed no matter how hard the wind blew. Still, it also proved that it was a special occasion for individuals who have just experienced another transformation in their lives and can now proudly say that they are no longer the same. Guests and even ourselves, the graduates, were reminded that no typhoon could put a good soldier down! It was like God’s poetic message for all of us. Unforgettable. Meaningful.
