A photo of two boys playing at a museum together just touched the hearts of many, but mostly one mother's heart.
Katie Myers of West Palm Beach, FL, posted the picture of the kids. One boy happens to be her 18-month old son, who suffers from spinal muscular atrophy which leaves him wheelchair-bound. The other is a stranger who has made the world better, just by being himself, says Myers.

To the little boy at the science museum, I don't know who you are, but thank you for being amazing. You let my son play...
“I would just like this child to know how he’s impacting the world just by being kind. Also, I’d love his parents to know they have an amazing child and how he’s engaging and treating everyone the same,” Myers told ABC News.
Myer originally posted the photo of the pair playing together on Facebook--which has now gained over 200,000 likes and over 50,000 shares--with the caption below:
“To the little boy at the science museum, I don’t know who you are, but thank you for being amazing. You let my son play and engage with you. You helped him pick up balls from the floor when you saw that he could not. You didn’t ask what was wrong with him or why he couldn’t walk, you just saw him. Kaden is a lot like you, he is very curious and wildly smart. He wants to know how everything works. Thank you for helping him turn the lever when you noticed he was too weak to do it himself. You will probably never see this but just by being you, you make this world better.”
