U.S. service men and women stood up and ensured an 8 year old girl from Dallas, Texas that she had nothing to fear. The child was fearful of comments made by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump to ban Muslims from the US.
Sadly this same sentiment has been echoed by many of his bigoted supporters.
Earlier this month Melissa Chance Yassini, took to Facebook to explain the devastating effect that the GOP frontrunner’s comments had had on the child.
The anti-immigration, anit-muslim rhetoric by Trump and his followers have a very familiar sound that has been echoed throughout history.
However, at this point in history members of the U.S. military, which is not yet under the authority of commander-in-chief the Donald, agreed with Sofia’s mom. They began reaching out to the little girl on social media, assuring her that the army isn’t coming to tear her from her home, and promising to protect her and her family.
