A moment of appreciation for all the single moms and dads out there hustling for their kids. Another moment of appreciation for this dad, who recently posted a selfie with his daughter to Reddit. A perfectly wholesome selfie with an even purer caption:
“Single father to a great girl blossoming into a happy woman. Worked my whole life to be able to someday say ‘You’re college bound kid.’ Said those words not long ago. She’s college bound and will be debt free.”

As someone who will be paying off their student loans until the end of times, (especially considering they don’t seem too far off) this VERY PURE and utterly unsullied message came as a little sprinkling of sunshine. His 19-year-old daughter is heading off to the School of Nursing at Texas Tech because she was inspired to become a nurse due to her father’s chronic illness.
“She’s a good ole country gal that grew up on my cattle ranch and developed a fantastic work ethic. I have no doubt she’s going to be an an amazing nurse. She empathetic, she caring, she’s curious and she’s just a good person,” he wrote.
Lovely! How can anyone possibly turn this into something utterly grotesque and perverted right? Ha ha. Good one. Because The Internet generally (and tbh Reddit, specifically) cannot help but ruin everything it touches, nasty comments were an inevitability.
