LANTERN PARADE


A new girl after every lantern parade.

I don’t know why but that’s the way it was in the 4 years that I attended CLSU’s annual lantern parade. The last one before graduation was particularly memorable and unexpected.

Sixteen years after, the beautiful friendship known as JARMMS came together for a lantern parade. We have grown bigger, particularly Mimi of the letter M1 and Me-ann of the letter M2, and certainly looked our age. All are married except Aiisa of the letter A (and Dapo of the +D who opted to be a single Mom). Too bad Aiisa did not make it and Joan of the letter J had to leave early.

Our College of Education shared with the College of Business Administration and Accountancy the overall championship that night. And we rejoiced, for this triumph of Tarods of the letter R who is now college dean, but more for the friendship which have endured time…
