The spirit of compassion and understanding was manifested by alumna Regina Layug-Rosero (MCHS 1998) during last month’s Metro Manila Pride event at the Marikina Sports Center. Together with her husband, she gave out “Free Mom Hugs” to participants who sought comfort and acceptance.
Regina took to Instagram to write about her experience: “I lost count of how many backs I rubbed, how many times I told them, you’re okay, it’s okay, you are loved, you are home.” It is this simple yet sincere and meaningful gesture that we celebrate the love and generosity given by a fellow Knoller. Thank you, Regina, for your warmth and kindness.
