It is so inspiring to see the world through the eyes of a child. Children look past skin colour and two boys proved that.
A mother, Jessie Winchester, took to Facebook on Sunday to show two adorable friends hugging each other.
Winchester revealed the image was taken in 2017 and it is of her son and his friend - whom he believes is his lookalike.
In fact, the little boy believed they resembled each other so much that they are twins.
The post read:
"This pic was taken two years ago my big boys first day in 'big school' he made a friend....his twin .... I remember him telling me how much they look alike....and whenever I look at the pic I smile ....pure happiness, innocence and love His doppelganger !!! #kidsseepeople #imstaying #love."
