Tonight we had a small ceremony, mostly family, to celebrate an accomplishment, an accomplishment reached by my oldest. It's one of those moments that doubles as a rite of passage in our culture.
The night was a culmination of hard work in pursuit of a goal. As parents, we assisted, but almost all the necessary steps were done by my son. Of course he had those of us offering support and encouragement, but the decision to see the project through to the end was entirely his.
So, on this night we want to say good job, son and we love you!
