In some cases, those attending the protests are even younger. A photo by photographer Abigail Gorden portrays one little boy in Los Angeles who joined in. Twitter user Noufabalkhail then shared it on the site:

His sign reads, "If he builds a wall, I'll grow up and tear it down."

"Today I captured a photo of this little boy in a march for a protest against Donald Trump," Gorden said on her Flickr page. "His expression captured me and it was both sad and heartwarming to see this little boy walking independently amongst adults."

The photo quickly went viral, as did another of the same boy:

There have been mixed reactions to this unidentified boy on social media. Some see him as brave; others believe his parents should not have included him in the protests.

Social reactions to little boy at Donald Trump protest
@GeorgeTakei I hate parents who impose their politics on their little kids.
@georgetakei I want to hug that little sweetie.
@GeorgeTakei Fantastic! My 14yo told me he can vote in 2020 and won't let this happen again. I ❤️️that boy.
@GeorgeTakei I have to wonder how that little girl in the foreground created that sign she's holding, with such perfect grammar and such.
@GeorgeTakei @CaptainsLog2016 just made this my header. Precious
@wmn007 @GeorgeTakei Leave kids out of it? The right starts teaching fear and intolerance in the cradle.We'll teach hope and resolve, thanks
@GeorgeTakei @chickilopiccolo @realDonaldTrump Look at her Donald. Now do the right thing. Step down and go find your lost soul. Pathetic.
@GeorgeTakei A child understands more than our President-Elect...
@GeorgeTakei I think taking a kid to a protest, which ever reason behind it, is blantantly stupid and unrsiponsible. That bn said, I agree.
@GeorgeTakei @conniewhitehome we are headed for the darkest times this country has ever seen , we need to turn back now
