Very Inspirational news IMO.
*DALLAS – Melissa Yassini and her 8-year-old daughter, Sofia, spend some time every evening reading messages from the thousands of people who have told Sofia not to be afraid just because she’s Muslim.
Sofia’s story of terror that she would be forced to leave America inspired a social media campaign with a hashtag, “#IWillProtectYou,” that has generated posts from soldiers, veterans and others supporting her.

“A lot of them, they call her out by name,” Melissa Yassini said on Wednesday. “That’s very important to her.”
Melissa Yassini originally shared her daughter’s response to Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump calling for a ban all Muslim immigration into the United States.*
Imagine your back in high school and some kid comes up to you and insults you just because you are a Catholic. They say Evil prevails when good men do nothing. When a young Jewish or Muslim kid is bullied and nobody stands up to the bullying…that means that evil has prevailed. While some folks take no issue with bullying another person due to that persons religion, Ill say that my parents and the Catholic Church brought me up to treat non Catholics with respect.
