GOOD NEWS Dad Returns From Afghanistan to Surprise Son Acting in First School Play
Here's a story worthy of a standing ovation!
A dad traveled back from Afghanistan to see his son's first middle school play, and it was all caught on camera.
Robert Kee has been working abroad for the State Department, and he made a surprise trip back to Fairfax, Virginia, to see his son, Trey, perform the role of Mufasa in Robinson Secondary School's production of the "The Lion King."
As the kids took their bows after the performance, Trey noticed his father in the audience. Shocked, he ran to the back of the auditorium to give his father a big hug as the crowd cheered.
“Honestly, I still can't really believe it,” Trey told Fox 5. “I'm excited because we just got through our premiere, and this just made it a thousand times better. I am so happy. He told me that he would be here in spirit, and I wore a little pin to remind me of him. And now I have the better thing in person.”
