Amanda is speaking to a large crowd. Georgina is sitting in the audience, and can't hear a word Amanda is saying. Georgina is also crying.


Why?


Not a true story, but based on true circumstances and could be a true story (except for the names) at some point in the future.

Amanda = Human/Teen or Young Adult/Female
Georgina = Human/Adult/Female.

Is Georgina related to Amanda?
Does Geolrgina have all her faculties? Specifically, is she hearing-impaired?
Same questions for Amanda.

Is the Jubilee relevant? Britannia? Britain?

is Amanda a politician? ruler? entertainer?

Can Georgina not hear because she is deaf? because there is too much other noise? faulty PA system? no PA system? is Georgina listening to something else?

Is Georgina related to Amanda? Yes
Does Geolrgina have all her faculties? see next question Specifically, is she hearing-impaired? Yes! That went quickly
Same questions for Amanda. assume Amanda is fully able-bodied.

Is the Jubilee relevant? Britannia? Britain? No to all, and I don't know the difference between the last two. Please clarify, as it might not be "no to all".

is Amanda a politician? ruler? entertainer? No to all

Can Georgina not hear because she is deaf? yes because there is too much other noise? no faulty PA system? no no PA system? no is Georgina listening to something else? she's deaf, so no.

Britannia is the name of the song you took the title from. Is the title relevant?

Is Georgina lipreading? Is she crying in sorrow? laughter? happiness?

Is Amanda graduating? (Britannia is the same tune as Pomp and Circumstance.)

Really, you've got enough for a

***SPOILER***

Amanda is graduating and is the saluditorian. Her mom, georgina, is deaf and cannot hear Amanda's speech, and is probably too far away to lipread, but is crying joy because her daughter is graduating and she is proud.

Amanda could give her speech in ASL at the same time as she is speaking. I'm sure no one would object.

Perhaps. Amanda is a real person (not named Amanda) who is the saludatorian of my sister's class, so we'll find out a week from tomorrow (Saturday). I shall update you then. Yes, that would be nice.
