With a little bit of extra kindness and friendship...

And this week, a 4-year-old girl proved that perfectly.
via: GettyAfter shouting "Black lives matter" at a shopper in Home Depot, the pair have now struck up an unlikely friendship.
It just goes to show that a little bit of kindness can go a long way...
via: GettyBecause now, the pair are total besties.
Thank goodness for this movement.

George Floyd's death sparked an outrage like never before.
via: GettyThousands upon thousands of people took to the streets in protest, and they were all marching for one thing: For the blatant racism and injustice in this country to be brought to an end.
And, remarkably, they worked.
BLACK WOMEN MATTER. BLACK MEN MATTER. BLACK CHILDREN MATTER. BLACK FAMILIES MATTER. BLACK POSSIBILITIES MATTER.… https://t.co/y6dlDWKPN3— a gem (@a gem)1591104461.0
It has also taken over our streets...

We are witnessing history in the making...

This is only the beginning.
THEYRE CHARGING THE OTHER 3 OFFICERS AND RAISED THE DEGREE. KEEP SIGNING PETITIONS, KEEP DONATING, KEEP CALLING. THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING— gabryelle (@gabryelle)1591208344.0
Just like this 4-year-old girl did.
via: Good News NetworkCamryn Radcliff was out shopping in a Home Depot in Colorado, Commerce City, with her mom, Cassi, when it happened.
Sherri Gonzales, a black woman who at the time, was completely unknown to Camryn, happened to walk by...
via: Good News NetworkThus prompting the youngster to shout the infamous slogan at her.
Sherri recalled the moment she heard her shout the phrase.
via: Good News Network"She said it with strength... Like she was making a point."
Sherri was a little taken back...
via: Good News NetworkBut she was touched, and turned to Camryn to tell her: "Thank you so much for saying that and for recognizing that my life matters."
The pair stood and talked for a while...Before posing for an adorable photo together right there and then in the warehouse.
Camryn sweetly invited Sherri for a sleepover...
via: Good News NetworkSo Cassi gave Sherri their number to stay in touch.
Since then, Cassi and Camryn have deepened their relationship with Sherri...
via: Good News NetworkAnd they recently held a garage sale in which they donated all the proceeds to her organization, Sherri’s Girls Empowerment International.
The sale made $2,070...
via: Good News NetworkWhich will now go towards sending girls in Kenya to school.
Sherri cannot get over her new friendship.
via: Good News Network"All of this happened," she told KCNC, "because a sweet little 4-year-old recognized that my life matters."
It just goes to show that a little kindness can go a long way...
via: Good News NetworkAnd that it's never too late to make friends!
