These 5-year-old BFFs got the same haircut to ‘confuse’ their teacher
Meet Jax and Reddy – the 5-year-old best friends who got the same haircut, so they could ‘confuse’ their teacher.
Three years ago, the young boys wanted to play a tricky prank on their teacher by getting the same haircut. The best friends thought this way others won’t be able to tell them apart. Their hartening story perfectly displays children’s deep understanding of tolerance and open-mindedness, as the only significant difference these kids see in each other is their haircut.
Jax’s mom, Lydia Stith Rosebush, shared a touching post on Facebook, explaining how her now 8-year-old son came up with the hilarious prank.
This morning Jax and I were discussing his wild hair. I told him that he needed a haircut this weekend. He said that…
In the touching post, Ms. Rosebush shares:
“I’m sure you all see the resemblance. 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.”
Ever since Lydia shared the sweet picture of the two 5-year-old best friends, their sweetness has gone immensely viral.
These two amazing boys are spreading awareness of the way we should all be treating each other – with tolerance.
One thing is for sure – we can all learn a valuable lesson from these innocent children, showing us how to treat each other with acceptance, love, and fairness.
It’s been three years since Jax and Reddy’s story emerged on the Internet. However, people are still loving the heartwarming example they give us all, especially amid days of global social unrest triggered by racial discrimination.
