Myrtle Beach, S.C. – A Baltimore mother’s Facebook post about her daughter and a young stranger she met on a beach has quickly gone viral.

Ayanna Toye Barrows was walking along Myrtle Beach on Tuesday with her daughter when a sweet little boy came up to them.

Barrows says the boy shared the shark tooth around his neck and said his name.

“They part ways while saying goodbye, walking in the opposite direction” Barrows said.

A few minutes later the boy came running back, yelling out Barrows’ 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 said she asked the boy’s mother for permission to take a beautiful photo of the kids.

“This is a moment that we humans understand as just simply seeing no color lines, no judgment, 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.”

“The world would be a much better place if we acted like these two kids.”
