Mom Shares Touching Lesson Her Young Daughter Taught Her On Vacation (Photo)

Ayanna Toye Barrows was enjoying a leisurely stroll on the beach with her young daughter. The pair was enjoying the sights around picturesque Myrtle Beach, South Carolina when all of a sudden her daughter would make a new friend.

As Mad World News shares, Barrows wishes that time could’ve stood still so we could all see how simple things can be.

Inspired by that thought, Barrows has posted a touching story about that day. The young boy came up to his daughter shyly at first, but the two were soon fast friends.

"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 wrote.

The kids got on for a little bit, and Barrows made some small talk with the boy’s mother. When it was time to go, she decided to snap an adorable pic to commemorate the moment.

“Before they walked, talked and raced, I asked his mother for permission to take this picture and this was the result. No one positioned them, told them to smile and there was absolutely no hesitation on their part at all. When we finished walking and it was time to go they hugged for a long time and exchanged about 20 "goodbyes," Barrows continued.

As you’ll see in the pic, neither one of the kids gave a second thought to the fact that they were of different races. All they saw was that they had made a new friend, and there were absolutely no barriers to them coming together.

“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," Barrows added.

In a perfect world, it really would be that simple. In fact, there are plenty of people walking the Earth that feel the same way. Unfortunately, stories about those people aren’t told as often as the stories of those that don’t necessarily feel that way.

Perhaps this mom’s little post will be another step towards changing that.
