Happy Graduation !

My daughter will start as a member of society from coming April 1st.

The students of the same generation overcame recruitment selection in tears,
through the worst hiring slump in 15 years.

When her college graduation was just 1 week away,
the huge earthquake wreaked maximum damage in 110 years.

Like many a college in Tokyo did it,
her college announced the cancellation of graduation ceremony. 
I'll tell you why.
① We need to save on electricity at the time of desperate electricity shortage. 
② On the occasion of subsequent aftershock, we might have no methods of transport.
③ We express our sympathy to the victims and to their families, and
would like to donate for them from the cost of graduation ceremony.
I feel proud of their decisions.

However, we were sorry to be unable to attend her graduation ceremony,
I was looking forward to taking commemorative photos of my daughter
in traditional Japanese kimono and Hakama skirt.

We relinquished all hope for a while, but we noticed that
there's no time like now forever.
We determined to taking commemorative photos of graduation
privately at their alma mater with friends.

My decision was not wrong.
Their cheerful smiles are charming, and
I'm happy to know they feel hopeful about the future.

Happy Graduation !
