Two pictures of a father walking his son to the first day of kindergarten and then to his dorm room on the first day of college have gone viral. The heart-warming shots were posted to social media by 17-year-old Charles Brockman III in tribute to his dad, who has walked or driven him to school for years.
Brockman, who is from Plano, Texas, explained:
With over 63,000 retweets and 260,000 likes it is clear that many people have been touched by the images. While the pictures were great in themselves, plenty of people commented on the fact that Brockman’s dad is still rocking his dreads, to which Brockman said:
From the first day of kindergarten to college move in. Thank you dad. pic.twitter.com/IpbudBIgdp
