This uplifting story of a fallen American soldier whose quest to save a young Iraqi boy was successful. Sadly the young soldier paid with his life in the war with Iraq leaving behind a young wife and children. The widow met with the young boy making sure her husband's wish was fulfilled. The interview said that the father of the boy did not wish his face to be shown as he was afraid of repercussions from his fellow Muslims. Here is a young American who is trying to help a child of the "enemy" from is heart not for money or for any selfish reason does this not prove that all Americans do not deserve to be considered by Muslims to be evil according to their beliefs? Please view the video of the interview and give your opinion of this unselfish act.

Thank you for this White....as I type through tears to learn that Brian lost his life and Ali's was saved is just awesome!I can't believe the stuff these women and men go through.....for his wife to say that the killing of her husband was one of the darkest and brightest times of her life was just amazing.....for her to lose her husband but to still be able to see Brian's sparkle in Ali's eyes blew me right away....I'm so glad that she could meet this little boy and be able to compare him to her husband the way she did....I can't type anymore,can't see the screen.....so sorry,so much more to say.....
