This Son Has A Reason to be Proud!
A man beaming with pride took to Twitter to post a photo of his parents who not only went back to school and graduated together, but overcame an addiction to crack cocaine, PIX 11 reports.
Charles Cole III posted the image of his smiling parents, Renate and Charles Cole with the caption, “My parents went back to college together and they graduated today. Together #salute.”

Cole says his parents were inspired by his college completion. As a result, they got sober and went back to school.
“Well, if he can do it, we can do it too,” Said Charles Cole. “We embedded this in him.”
The Cole’s dreams of graduating were put on hold by their addictions and raising three children. Now sober for more than two decades, the Coles went back to school and got their degrees.
The couple attended Sacramento Theological Seminary and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies.
Now this is a happy headline!
