The Greatest Graduation Ceremony Ever

There's Still Kindness In The World

The Greatest Graduation Ceremony Ever

Wherever you live, you'll be able to relate to the frustration of train delays. Usually it's not too stressful... unless you're on the way to your college graduation ceremony.

Unfortunately this is exactly what happened for 22-year old Jerich Marco Alcantara in New York last week.

He was riding the subway to New York City College when a brake failure shut down the E train in Queens for 90 minutes.


Alcantara quickly realised he wasn't going to make it to Radio City Music Hall for his ceremony, so tried to make the best of the situation.

The 22-year old, in full dress for the ceremony, addressed his fellow passengers, "Thank you guys for coming out to see my graduation. I appreciate it."

It drew a cheer from his fellow passengers, and an impromptu commencement ceremony swung into action, all captured on camera by a fellow passenger, and it now has more than 2 million views on Facebook.
