Images of a white woman comforting a little black boy she’d never met were shared via social media and have gone viral.
Star Balloon-Bradley took her nephew, Isaiah, to a hometown football game in September.
Isaiah lost interest in the game and started getting restless.
His aunt was preoccupied watching the match and Isaiah started walking around the benches.
His aunt, Star, realised Isaiah was no longer by her side and urgently looked around for him.
She found him sitting on the lap of a complete stranger. After wondering around, he gravitated towards the lady, sat on her lap and fell asleep.
After calming down, Star, realised how special the moment was and took some pictures of them.
About a fortnight ago, history repeated itself as Isaiah wondered to the same woman again.
He sat with her, put his head on her shoulder and she put him to sleep.
Star revealed that she asked if they should take Isaiah from her but the caring woman clearly enjoy her time with the little boy.
Star’s Facebook post of the picture included a heartfelt thank you to the woman.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the post went viral and received hundreds of positive comments.
The woman, only known as Angela, shared this message upon receipt of Star’s post: “To God be all praise, glory, and honour! I have been overwhelmed with emotions today as I have read the post Star Balloon-Bradley shared. I am humbled by the kind words everyone has spoken. Isaiah is absolutely adorable! I pray people will Jesus in all this & know His love is beyond measure & that is how I want to love & life my life. I’m not worthy but He sure is!”
Amidst all the stories of racial tensions and discrimination, it’s heart-warming to come across stories of this nature, where the colour of one’s skin is irrelevant.
