'The Rock' Honors Disabled Grade School Friend From Tampa In New Short Film

Dwayne Johnson, better known by his longtime fans as 'The Rock', is once again in the headlines for ultra-positive reasons. The pro wrestler turned movie star recently honored his longtime friend Milton McBride Rosen, who has Downs Syndrome, in a short film. Rosen and Johnson were friends in Tampa growing up, and Johnson says McBride taught him how to lift weights, and to never give up. How inspiring. The Rock calls his friend "The Rock's Rock", which is also the title of the inspirational short film honoring Milton.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson is not only one of the world's most successful entertainers, but one of the world's most inspirational people on social media. Johnson often posts photos and videos with captions that inspire his social media followers; between Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter Rocky boasts a combined 210 million followers. Dwayne Johnson was recently named one of the 100 most influential people by TIME Magazine, and as usual, had an inspiring response by Tweet.
