This was on my Facebook. It showed that to children, color doesn’t matter. One was Caucasian, the little boy, and the other was African American, the little girl. It was the sweetest picture I have seen in a long time.
“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.”
This is what I have tried to get across to adults several times here lately. If only we adults could be as honest and truly interested in each other’s friendship instead of beating each other down, then the world would be so much better off. After all, “WE ARE ALL CREATED EQUAL!!!!!” These two precious children know it without even knowing what they are doing. Like the post said, they don’t see color, they only see the possibility of having another friend, and the friendship could last a lifetime! Wouldn’t that be sweet for these two children full of such brotherly love with no boundaries. Thank you, whoever, for posting this. And to this, I want to add, LOVE IN CHRIST!
