Readers — One of you sent in this story of a 4 year old American girl, Portia Walton, saved by running to a man at the mall massacre. This quote should give courage to us all:
Portia’s father, Philip, who was in the United States when the terrorists struck, was in disbelief when he saw the picture of his daughter darting across the mall.
“She’s not normally the kind of girl that would run to a stranger, particularly one with a gun,” the 39-year-old dad told the paper.
And she’s not alone in terms of bravery: The guy who saved her is simply amazing. Kenyan Abdul Haji ran to the mall when he heard about the tragedy and managed to save some other Walton family members, too. The Reuters photo, which I don’t have the rights to, is stunning. – L.
