CLARKSDALE, Miss. — A photo taken of two little girls during nap time at their school is melting hearts across the Internet.

This sweet picture was taken while the girls were taking a snooze on a mat at the Presbyterian Day School in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Along with the post is a Bible verse that reads, “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.”

The picture has been shared and liked thousands of times on Facebook.

Many were touched by the photo with some saying that love knows no boundaries and that it has inspired hopes of love and racial harmony for future generations.

Commenter Wendy summed it up perfectly: “We may be adults but we’re never too old to learn. This is how it should be for all of us.”
