It was the end of nap time at Presbyterian Day School in Clarksdale, Mississippi and something very cute was captured right when the lights were turned back on.
An African American girl and a Caucasian girl were seen holding each others hands while they had been sleeping. The teacher couldn’t resist to snap a photo of the hand-holding girls.
Everyone at the school fell in love with the adorable photo, and they ended up posting it on their Facebook page. As a caption they wrote the following:
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. – 1 John 4:7
It only took hours for this special photo to hit viral status. All around the U.S., people began to comment on the beautiful capture.
This just goes to show us prejudice is a learned behavior, it’s not born within us. I prayer these babies stay friends for life. – commented Kristen Carnegie on Facebook.
Beyond just the cuteness of two little girls napping and hand holding, it also serves as a reminder of how young children don’t have concepts or concerns over skin color. There is no division present, it is only when society ingrains these notions within them that the separation begins. The photo turned out to serve as a strong lesson for us all.
And no doubt this will be a photo these two girls will cherish greatly when they get older!
Check out this beautiful photo and share it with friends and family!
What a heart melting moment. Please pass it on to your friends and family on Facebook. Everyone needs to see this photo.
