This Kentucky-boys story is going super viral online, and it’s for the best reason ever.
The story was first posted on Facebook by Jax’s mom, Lydia Stith Rosebush. It shares a very beautiful lesson about racial harmony.
Check out the story below:
The two boys clearly have different skin colors, but that didn’t stop them from doing what they did. They believed if they had the same haircut, their teacher would be unable to tell them apart.
Jax’s mother says she is glad people can “see what little kids see.”
“It’s really cool to see that move on from our family right into his relationships with his friends,” Kevin Weldon, Reddy’s father, said. “There’s an innocence children have that sometimes we lose. If we could get some of that back, I think it would be amazing.”
Reddy and his older brother, Enock, both grew up in a white household. They were born in Africa but adopted by Mr. Weldon, pastor of Carlisle Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, and his wife Debbie.
“My sons do not look like me… but we are family all the same,” Mr. Weldon added. “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.”
