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 a 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.”
