After a relaxing sunset stroll at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, one mom took home with her a memory that she had to share with the rest of the world.
Here’s the photo that says it all, a solid moment saved in time, which Ayanna Toye Barrows expounded on for us to understand its significance.
My daughter and I are in Myrtle Beach taking a sunset walk when this adorable and sweet little boy comes walking right…
Barrows is the mother of the sweet little girl, who’s pictured hugging the charming boy in a light-blue shirt.
It was this boy who walked right up to her on his own accord, as he wanted to show off his special shark tooth necklace.
He introduced himself, and so did she.

“When we finished walking and it was time to go they hugged for a long time and exchanged about 20 ‘goodbyes.’
As much as the photo is a precious keepsake for Barrows, she wants to share a personal observation she feels will benefit humanity.
“This is a moment that we humans understand as just simply seeing no color lines, no judgement, no race, no hate, no shades.
“It’s just pure….two kids meeting on a sunset walk without a care in the world…all they saw was each other.
“This world would be a much better place if we acted like these two kids.”
