A photo of two best friends in Louisville, USA, has gone viral around the world for the valuable lesson these little five-year-olds are teaching adults!
Mom Lydia Sith Rosebush posted the photo last week on Facebook. It showed her son Jax, and his friend Reddy.
She wrote: “This morning Jax and I were discussing his wild hair. 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. He said he 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.”
She then said: “Here’s a picture of Jax and Reddy from their Christmas program. I’m sure you all see the resemblance…”
Lydia said: “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.”
Here’s an after-photo of the boys once Jax had his hair cut!
