With so much controversy and negativity in the world, it’s heartwarming to hear positive and uplifting stories. At Shareably, this is the kind of news we strive to bring you, and the story below perfectly epitomizes our mission.
No matter how much we choose to ignore it, there is still racial tension around us. While we may not condone slavery anymore, people are still treated differently based on their color, religion, and ethnicity to varying degrees.
But it shouldn’t be like this, and one mother perfectly captured how beautiful life can be if we looked past color, religion, and ethnicity.
While at Myrtle Beach with her daughter, a mom was touched when a sweet little boy approached her daughter. The two played and laughed together; they hit it off instantly. The girl’s mother was absolutely taken aback by the boy’s sincerity and friendliness.
But it’s what the boy does next that is taking this story viral. Please read on to learn what happened…
“My daughter and I are in Myrtle Beach taking a sunset walk when this adorable and sweet little boy comes walking right up to her. He shares with her the shark tooth around his neck. He tells her his name and asks her name to which she tells him. They part ways while saying goodbye, walking in the opposite direction. 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 :)
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.”
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.”
