Cursory: A heartwarming video of a 78-year-old man graduating from university has gone viral on social media In a touching video, he rushed home to greet his aged mother, who couldn’t attend the graduation ceremony. The happy man wore his graduation gown and walked down the street to his mother’s house to show her his degree.
A 78-year-old man has proven that perseverance and mindset is the key to achieving one’s goal. His story has shown that age should not and cannot hinder a person from achieving their dreams if they work hard at it because he took all obstacles life threw at him and turned them into motivation.
We do not know what happened during his youth, but he decided to make something out of his life regardless. The determined man enrolled in university in his old age. He went to classes, took the tests, did the assignments, wrote the examinations, and passed.
His aged mother, who’s 98, could not attend the graduation ceremony, so he decided to visit her with his graduation gown. He walked down the street to her house, shouting that he had graduated.
Due to her age, his mother struggled to get up to hug her son and congratulate him amidst her tears of joy. While embracing his mother, he emotionally admitted that he cried at the ceremony when he was given his degree.
