Soldiers tell fearful Muslim girl, ‚I will protect you‘

„#Iwillprotectyou with my last breath Sofia!“ wrote Brandon Sterne, a 22-year Navy veteran who served in Iraq.

Sterne told the AP Wednesday that he had seen in Iraq the importance of supporting people of all faiths and races.

He said he was particularly heartened by all of the posts from „my brothers and sisters in arms.“

„I would just tell her that hatred’s not going to win, that it’s OK,“ Sterne said. „There are good people in the world, and the good people will always protect her from the evil people.“
