Today is the 26th of October 2013, Saturday. I was invited by my son, Jarett, school to attend his preschool graduation. My first kid graduating from preschool and I was so thrilled. There are 320 other children that is graduating with him. A celebration cum ceremony was conducted in the hall of a private club.
They hand out certificates to the kids and there are performance by different various preschool kids in the region.
When it is my son’s turn to go on stage, I was so exited and proud. I have a lot of feelings about the moment that I do not know how to describe. My son is graduating. and he is moving on to former education. Seeing him on stage let me know that I am now a father with a lot more responsibility (of course previously is as well).
Many things flashes through my mind as I see him walk across the stage. About his future, about his academic, about his attitude towards life and so on. He have been our precious since the day he is born and I am very sure that he is destined to be someone useful to our family and to the society. He is starting to show his passion and love for the community and mankind. I remember I always used to tell him and my other kids that LOVE is the ultimate reason why we are present and we will love everyone no matter what the outcome is.
Vividly I recalled what I used to tell him when he is a baby. “I love everybody and everything and everybody and everything loves me”. I would repeat this again and again. Truly I believe that without love, this world wouldn’t even be able to survive till this time. It is love that heal, care, forgive, accept and trust that make this world a better living place. With love, lights prevail, without, we will be living in darkness.
