The Code of Silence

Omerta!  I thought that was just an Italian folly.  But look, every Greek named fraternity or sorority had adapted the tradition in their brotherhood or sisterhood.  But don’t look now, even the honors-based science organization of the UP had adapted the unbreakable code of silence.

At least that is what I gathered when I questioned my daughter how she faired in the formal interview, the culminating task they had to go through before the final rites in the org application.  I just can’t understand why my daughter had to keep secrets from me.  Gosh those orgs!  If only I could twist the heads 360 degrees, perhaps that will give them a lesson on allowing parents into their children’s lives completely.
