Oh my Heart!
Yesterday afternoon we attended the Sir John A Macdonald High School graduation. We didn’t know any of the grads, but came to see the young man we had recently selected receive Robert’s Award. I wondered if I would feel anything when he walked up to receive his diploma… and yes, I smiled at his swagger, his big grin, and the subject award for calculus (who knew?!). Then it was Steve and I grinning broadly, knowing Robert was in the room, when this was the one student to “jump his chair” for the mortarboard toss.
And finally, the moment we came for… I watched Steve present a shocked, and honoured, Moataz Ibrahim with the first annual Robert Sampson Integrity Award. It felt so perfectly correct, as if all the stars had aligned. Maotaz (Mizo) received a certificate, and letter of explanation done by cfns, and the cheque for $850 made out to Dalhousie, where he will be studying engineering. Amen.
