On August 28th, the whole world was shaken by heartbreaking news—actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for playing Black Panther in the hit Marvel superhero franchise, has died. Turns out, the man was diagnosed with colon cancer back in 2016, but decided to not make this information public. The actor was only 43 years old.

The impact Chadwick Boseman had on people, especially youngsters all over the world, is simply immeasurable and can't be put into words. But at least partly, it can be captured in photos. These past few days, parents from all around the globe have been sharing photos on social media of their little ones holding their own memorials for Chadwick Boseman with action figures, with many of them throwing up the Wakanda Forever salute across their chests in these photos.

Bored Panda invites you to look through some of the most heartbreaking photos of adorable little kiddos honoring their hero.

After posting a photo of his son honoring Black Panther, user King Westbrook added this: "Kian wanted to thank everyone from the bottom of his heart for all the loving and kind words given to him for this post. When he found out about Chadwicks passing, he was heart broken. But he knows death is a part for being human, and wanted to cope with losing his hero this way."

A user Grafangel1RONIN replied to one of these photos by saying this: "Our hearts are broken in so many ways & yet when I see this picture I see a future king or president, leader, or hero. I see a young person who is inspired and will inevitably channel that inspiration to those graced with his presence. Its ok 2 cry little one it will make u brave."

Translation: Black panther, a King, a warrior with a pure heart, a born leader, but in addition to everything, and most importantly, a hero to me.
