What a joy it was to watch this moment from Godwin High School senior Maggie Rocke, who had a goal since the beginning of high school to walk across the graduation stage to receive her diploma, overcoming many obstacles associated with cerebral palsy.

Unfortunately, there wasn't a large crowd like it would have been if it wasn't for the coronavirus -- but people who were there cheered her on.
In the video -- Maggie says it was all a little surreal after she walks across the stage.
