Good parents want nothing but the best for their children, that is why they tend to set high expectations for them. They do this so their children would aim higher for their future. Yesterday, Facebook-user Rofherson Canones Suzon shared an emotional video of his surprise graduation announcement for his parents. While their family was having a dinner in a well-known restaurant, the netizen handed out a white envelope to his father saying that it his salary. Curious about what is inside, Suzon’s father opened it and was surprised upon seeing the graduation pictures and a certificate stating that his son is among the graduating students of Polytechnic University of the Philippines this coming May.
According to the netizen, his parents had no idea that he would graduate this year. It is because he failed on one subject during the previous semester.
Despite having a tiring and hectic schedule in school, Suzon managed to add that failed subject on his load this semester, along with other ten subjects.
He admitted that he had a hard time managing his busy and loaded schedule but he endured everything for the sake of making his parents proud.
In the video, Suzon’s mother was completely surprised after it was revealed that her son was finally graduating next month. At first, she tried to control her emotions yet, in the end, she could not help herself from crying.
On the other hand, his father hugged him from the back and kissed him saying. “Salamat nak… nakahabol ka.”
The aforementioned Facebook post immediately went viral and has gained positive reactions online. Upon posting yesterday, it has now 16,000 likes, 349,753 views, and 4,798 shares.
