Thank God

Back in Philippines, everyone I went to school with a graduating from college. Aside from the egregious amount of graduation pictures they’ve posted on Facebook, there is an even more obnoxious amount of posts that go something like this:

"Kaboom! Finally graduating!"

I find it a little off putting that people thank god for what they and other people have worked for. College would not have been the best four years of her life if she didn’t make it so. And what about the professors, the teachers, and everyone else who made it possible?

Some would say that none of the opportunities that come our way would not be possible if god or some higher power had not willed it. I disagree. I say it is a matter of mathematics. The chances we get are products of our actions or the actions of others, directly or indirectly.

If everything in our life is of free will (as god would have granted us, according to some), then what does he have to do with it?

When you graduate, who will you thank?
