Real Soldiers.

The BBC has this great piece about Kurdish fighters stopping to rescue this young disabled child who’d been abandoned in the desert for approximately two days. You know you’re dealing with a real soldier when he or she stops to help a child. (Sorry, but the BBC video doesn’t appear to have an embed option.)

The Kurds seem to be amazing heroes. I never even knew they existed until St. John Paul II mentioned them in the Sunday Angelus – on multiple occasions. If anyone knows of a good book on their history, send me a message via my contact page. Not only are they being persecuted by IS/ISIS themselves, but they are reaching out to help and support others who are persecuted as well.
