Sup Travellers?! Here's a little something that's most definitely going to get you teary eyed. It's not a sad video but it's just so beautiful that it melts your heart.

During Brenau University’s 2015 commencement, Debra Cooper anxiously waited among the graduating class to receive a diploma for a Master of Occupational Therapy degree, but she was about to get way more than that!

As the university President Ed Schrader gave his welcoming remarks at the ceremony, he gave a special thank you to all the veterans. He gave a special shout out to Cooper, who served in the U.S. Army, and her daughter, Staff Sgt. Markita James, who was currently serving in Afghanistan. Little did Cooper know that her daughter had planned a surprise homecoming!

“Actually, Sgt. James is not in Afghanistan,” Schrader said. “She is here so that she could be with her mother at graduation.”

Cooper suddenly got the hint and turned around to find her daughter, who was standing in the audience behind her. She frantically looked around, but when their eyes met, Cooper’s jaw dropped. She jumped up and ran to her daughter.

“Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God,” Cooper gasped.

The two embraced, and tears and hugs were shared in a moment that was nothing short of magical.

These are the magical moments that make the internet such a wonderful place, Not only the internet but the world in general. With all the chaos happening today we can all rest assure that somewhere on the planet, there is a soldier returning home from active duty to surprise their loved ones. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
