America is extremely divisive right now. Adults all over the country are butting heads when it comes to political and civil rights issues, including topics like the 2020 election results, the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as Putin’s war in Ukraine. With all of the negativity floating around the country right now, it may seem like there is little hope for America – but these two children found a way to connect despite differences that were only skin deep.
Mom snapped a photo of her daughter and her new friend, whom she met at Myrtle Beach in the American South. She also shared a heartwarming story about the two children.
“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,’” the mom wrote.
