For all the right reasons, a photo of three Oklahoma teenagers at their high school graduation has gone viral.
One of the students has Down syndrome, while the other two children have been buddies since kindergarten.
Pryce Jackson and Kyran English, according to Dena Fabian-Moore, were two of the numerous students who saved Madison Moore’s life.
“Pryce and Kyran, in particular, have always gone out of their way to check on Madison,” Fabian-Moore told Fox News. They “have kind of been her protectors”.
Madison’s closeness with her parents dates back to kindergarten, when she was initially integrated into regular classrooms, something her parents campaigned for so she could obtain the services she needed.
“They don’t look at her as a kid with Down syndrome,” Fabian-Moore said. “They just look at her as [a] friend.”
As a “thank you,” Madison’s dad posted a photo on Twitter of the three of them side by side at their high school graduation. The caption read:
“These 2 fine young men have watched out and have been friends with my daughter since kindergarten.”
Over 800,000 people have liked the post.
Last one. Parents, please be an advocate your child. When a school says No, we can't do that. You tell them YES YOU CAN! pic.twitter.com/kYvZZ1LaNM— Kevin Moore (@t__bird1) May 22, 2021
