The hooding ceremony is steeped in tradition...a reward for hard work and dedication devoted to the study and pursuit of a degree in law. Conferred on Dione today as she becomes a UCLA School of Law graduate and alumni.
That's a proud father!
I adore these two...sisters in the hood!
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
We love you Dione. And with our best "Dione face"...CONGRATULATIONS! We are over the moon and busting with pride!
