“PS. SA MGA TAONG NAKAKARANAS NG HIRAP SA BUHAY, WAG PO KAYO MAWALAN NG PAG ASA!! LAGI NIYO PONG TATANDAAN NA MAY PLANO ANG DIYOS SA LAHAT NG NANGYAYARI SA BUHAY NATIN.”
Graduation is one of the most significant events in a student’s life. Most celebrate the occasion with family and friends. Sadly, not all people get to experience this event with all the trimmings.
Ryan Reyes shared his graduation story on Facebook which had netizens in tears.
On his graduation day, Ryan’s father told him that he was so sorry that he could not treat his son out for a meal because of insufficient funds. His plan was to go out with his son and maybe eat at Jollibee, but his budget did not allow this.
“Nak, pasensya na wala pa ako pera eh, kain sana tayo sa labas, kahit Jollibee lang sana.”
This statement broke Ryan’s heart to the point where he had to hold back his tears.
“Hindi pa nag uumpisa ang lahat pero ito na yung dumurog sa akin kanina. Pinilit kong itago ang mga luha na gusto ng bumagsak mula sa aking mga mata.”
Ryan said that this graduation is not even about him, it is all about the man that drives every day just so his son could have better days.
“Para ito sa isang driver na binaybay ang pagsubok ng buhay para makapagtapos ang anak niya. Para ito sa isang tatay ng tinanggap niyang buo ang anak na bakla. PARA SA ‘YO ANG ARAW NA ITO, PAPA”.
Ryan said that it does not matter that his dad couldn’t take him out because he knows the struggles he’s been through.
He said that his dad’s presence and love is already enough.
“Alam ko at naiintindihan kong sa ngayon ay hindi mo ako mapapakain sa mamahaling restaurant or kahit fast food chain man lang after graduation. Wag kang mag alala papa, PRESENSYA AT PAGMAMAHAL MO PALANG BUSOG NA BUSOG NA AKO.”
Ryan promised to give back to his dad. He also says that the sacrifices that his father showed will remain unrivaled.
“Kung tutuusin, ay napaka swerte kong tao na binigyan ako ng Diyos ng tatay na katulad mo. WALA KANG KATULAD!!
MAHAL NA MAHAL AT PROUD AN PROUD AKO SA ‘YO PAPA..
