Emotional Father-Son Moment Caught On Camera

For Ken Mohammad, it was an emotional moment as he dropped his 18-year-old son, Nasir Mohammad, off at college. For starters, the global coronavirus pandemic had wreaked havoc on Nasir’s senior year of high school.

“Seniors really got robbed this year,” Ken explained. “So you didn’t have a prom. You didn’t have a graduation for me to cry at.”

But what ultimately left the dad crying was what gets most parents as they turn their children “loose” in the world.

“I just kind of broke down and lost it,” Ken says. “I’ve never really been away from my son before.”

“I’ll miss you, son. You’ve been with me your whole life. You’re gone now,” Ken Mohammad tells his son in the heartwarming video that has since gone viral.

Nasir understands what a huge moment this is for his dad.

“He really wanted me to go to college,” the 18-year-old said. “He wanted me to get higher education. So I knew that he was going to be proud.”

That pride is evident in Ken Mohammad’s emotional reaction. And what a blessing to be loved so deeply.
