In July 2017, a woman was making a routine trip to Walmart with her little boy when she realized he wasn’t by her side.
He’d wandered off at some point as they were walking through the aisles, but fortunately, she found him a few minutes later near the front of the store. She was about to scold him for disappearing on her when she saw what he’d been doing.
The little boy was kneeling in front of a bench, above which was a board that read, “Every second counts.” It was filled with photos of missing children. He’d been praying for them — a gesture that brought her to tears and inspired her to share a photo with the online community.
“I had to run into Walmart,” she wrote on Facebook. “I turned around to make sure my son was next to me. Instead of finding him by my side I found him kneeling in front of the missing children board praying.”
The powerful photo went viral, touching the hearts of people with missing loved ones of their own.
One Facebook page called Bring Aubrey Home recognized a child in one of the photos on the wall as Aubrey Jayce Carroll, a teenage boy from Georgia who went missing in 2016.
“I don’t know who this little guy is but I want to thank you for praying for these children,” the page wrote. “This has surely touched my heart. If I knew where or who this kid was I would love to thank him personally.”
One commenter put it best. “Whether or not you believe in God really doesn’t matter. This was a child in Walmart who was thinking about others and doing the only thing he could to help. The world would be a better place if everyone followed his example.”
