I am the mom of a graduating senior. I thought it was terrible. We had to wait until almost 5 pm to find out whether or not graduation was on. Then they rushed through the ceremony. These poor kids worked 13 years for this moment and no one could even enjoy it. The valedictorian wrote a beautiful speech, I think. But, it was raining and everyone was too busy hiding under umbrellas to enjoy it. Maybe for the kids it was fine but think about the elderly grandparents sitting in the rain. There was no reason why the ceremony wasn't postponed until Saturday!!
"Maybe for the kids it was fine" EXACTLY
Graduation is for the kids, not you. If you can't handle a little rain to watch you kid graduate, well then you have your priorities out of line. Stop always making it about yourself and think of who it is really about, it wasnt your day it was your childs, act like it.
