A 5-year-old boy living in Louisville, Kentucky wanted a new haircut to look like his best friend. The purpose was to trick his teacher.
This is when the mother of this boy burst into tears for hearing her little boy growing up.
Wait until you hear the real reason.
Lydia Stith Rosebush, the mother of the boy, had no other choice but to post this amazing story on Facebook.
“This morning Jax and I were discussing his wild hair,” Rosebush wrote. “I told him that he needed a haircut this weekend. He said that he wanted his head shaved really short so he could look like his friend Reddy. Jax couldn’t wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddy’s so that his teacher wouldn’t be able to tell them apart. He thought it would be so hilarious to confuse his teacher with the same haircut.”
The boy is on the left of the picture, and Reddy is on the right side. You can see why he wanted a new haircut.
“Here’s a picture of Jax and Reddy from their Christmas program. I’m sure you all see the resemblance,” Rosebush continued. “If this isn’t proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I don’t know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.”
The post gathered more than 109,000 reactions and approximately 65,000 shares. That’s for less than a week since the mother posted the picture to show her friends how the kid is growing up.
We really need more kids like Jax here. He believes a new haircut will change everything.
The only difference in his eyes that stands between these best friends is a haircut. And you still think that kids don’t know anything?
They have the purest soul and heart.
Who is Reddy?
According to the main news station source, Reddy lives with his older brother Enock. They were born in Africa and adopted by a pastor at 2 and 4, respectively. Their parents now are Kevin and Debbie Weldon.
“My sons do not look like me … but we are family all the same,” Weldon told ABC7. “We share the same last name, love each other with all we have, and are a forever family. One day when I am gone, they will inherit all that I have and carry on our family name.”
What a story huh? A new haircut could change the world and make us all equal!
Kids have honest hearts. They don’t know anything about prejudice and hate. The color of the skin doesn’t make a difference. We are all the same!
Don’t forget to share this with all of your friends.
