What’s The Story Behind This Powerful Image Of A Farmer And His Son?

The picture has been doing the rounds since last year: it gets more touching.

1. This picture first went viral on Facebook last year.

The old man in the image is believed to be a poor farmer from the Hmong tribe, and the young man apparently graduated from Ratchpatr University in Chiang Rai.

Here’s the kicker: according to this Thai report, the young man was one of five brothers, but one by one his mother and three of his siblings passed away. It appears that after the man’s wife died, he worked every day to give his son a chance in life.
