The photo spread across Facebook, garnering tons of reaction.

After several minutes of fear-driven searches, she finally found him, and what she saw hit her like a ton of bricks.
Initially, the worried mother wanted to tell the boy off for leaving her side, but when she saw him knelt in prayer, she teared up, not believing her eyes.

Among the children whose photos were displayed on the poster was Aubrey Jayce Carroll, who has been missing since 2016.
The Facebook page dedicated to boy's search posted Braydon's photo in tribute to boy's compassion.
The image of Braydon became a real Facebook breakthrough and one of the comments summarized its meaning in the most powerful way:
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.
