Rumble At this graduation ceremony, one high school student is receiving more than a diploma. Miranda is about to receive the sweetest surprise of her life, from someone she didn’t expect to see. A high school student is receiving more than just a diploma, she is getting the sweetest surprise from someone she didn’t expect to see. Her brother came home in time for the ceremony. What a heartwarming moment!

Her brother Derek, who is an airman, had come home just in time for Miranda graduation ceremony. After a band played the school’s anthem. Derek climbed on the stage, approached the cue and addressed everyone present at the gym:

“Good evening everybody. Would you please join me for the Pledge of Allegiance?”

While the graduates raise their right hand and start reciting, Miranda can be seen trying to silence her happy sobs in the second row. When Derek asks everyone to take back their seats, Miranda runs towards him and climbs the stage for a firm hug, while the rest of the graduates greet them with a thunderous applause!

When the time comes for our siblings to move away for school or to protect our country, the leave behind a void that no one can fulfill. We know they will eventually come back to stay, but until then, we feel their absence and it makes us sad. That is probably why there are so many homecoming surprise videos out there - there is no greater surprise than to see that they have come home sooner than expected, to rid us of the misery.

Surprises are always welcome and looked forward to even if they are surprises. We can all agree that surprises are something that all of us enjoy and wish for, but nowadays not all family members can be present for some surprises. Such is the case with families who have loved one in the special forces. We keep them in our thoughts, but no matter how strongly we feel their presence, it still isn't quite the same.

In another video, we see one big sister who decided to come back home from deployment, but she first had to visit a very special someone for a surprise. Her baby sister was out for a band practice at school, testing some new techniques and was completely unaware of the person she is about to see.

It's always an emotional moment to witness these surprise homecomings. When she notices big sister coming into the room in her military uniform, she is in disbelief. When the sight finally hits her, she breaks formation mid-play and sprints towards him for a tight, sisterly hug. That is one priceless present.

Thank you to all the brave women and men who are out there, protecting and serving our country and providing us with the freedom that we enjoy today. Check out the heart-melting moment that Amber surprises her little sister at her school during band practice. It's a tearjerker!
