A picture truly is worth a thousand words.
Ayanna Toye Barrows was in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Tuesday when a young boy walked up to her daughter.
He showed her a shark tooth he wore around his neck, told her his name and asked what hers was.
“They part ways while saying goodbye, walking in the opposite direction,” Barrows wrote on Facebook about the encounter. “A few minutes later he comes running back, in what seems to be in slow motion, yelling out my daughter’s name. She turns around and is greeted by his smile. So they share a few words, mainly about his super cool shark’s tooth that apparently gave him powers.”
Barrows asked the boys mother if she could take a picture of the two and then shared it that same day Facebook. Since then, over 131,000 people ‘liked’ it.
“This is a moment that we humans understand as just simply seeing no color lines, no judgement, no race, no hate, no shades,” she added. “It’s just pure….two kids meeting on a sunset walk without a care in the world…all they saw was each other.”
