Two touching photos of a father and son are tugging at heartstrings across the internet.
One photo shared by 17-year-old Charles Brockman III shows him and his father walking side-by-side on the first day of kindergarten. The next photo shows the pair walking side-by-side as his dad moves him into his college dorm room.
“From the first day of kindergarten to college move in. Thank you dad,” Brockman wrote when sharing the photo on Twitter.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Brockman graduated from Plano Senior High School in Texas in June. He’s now running track for Mississippi State University.
“It hasn’t hit me yet because they’re still here, but I know it will hit me soon,” Brockman told the newspaper. “I’m happy they raised me to be who I am. But I know I got growing up to do.”
