Mother’s photo of daughter meeting stranger on beach goes viral
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 said she was walking along Myrtle Beach on Tuesday with her daughter when a sweet little boy came up to them.
Barrows said the boy showed her daughter a shark tooth around his neck and told her 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 photo of the smiling children.
“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.”
