Mother shares touching post after daughter meets young stranger on beach trip

A Maryland woman's Facebook post this week about her daughter and a young stranger has quickly on viral. 

Ayanna Toye Barrows was in Myrtle Beach on Tuesday, taking a sunset walk with her daughter, when she said a sweet little boy came up to them. The mother said the boy shared the shark tooth around his neck and said what his name was. 

"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 picture of the two kids and the result was priceless. The little girl wrapped her armed around the boy and they both donned adorable grins. 

"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."

Barrows ended the Facebook post by saying "the world would be a much better place if we acted like these two kids."
