I strayed into Fr. James Reuter, SJ’s column in Philippine Star “At 3AM” with his article entitled “Dare to Dream“. Fr. Reuter is no stranger to me because he used to be such a familiar fixture in productions mounted by St. Paul College of which I am an alumna. He writes about Wijinne Hizon Lumagui who had suffered from an illness (which Fr. Reuter does not disclose) and which has caused her to postpone finishing her education over periods of convalescence. She finally graduated recently at age 30 and excerpts of her valedictory address are provided in the article.
I suggest you read the article. I have a letter to write and mail to Wijinne. (Her address and contact details are also provided.)
