Soldier’s Act Means Everything to Little Girl

With all of the negativity in the world, it is nice to read something heartwarming during the day. When we saw this story. Originally written by Sarah Barlow, we knew we had to share.

The Atlanta airport is quite a daunting place, and for a child it must be even more so. 

Recently, those traveling through the airport got to witness an act of true patriotism. Moving through the terminal was a group of 30-40  soldiers in their camo uniforms. As they began heading to their gate, everyone rose and began waving and cheering.

Then, a young girl of 6 or 7 ran up to one of the male soldiers, tugging on his pants leg. He kneeled down and said, “Hi.”

The little girl, in her childish innocence, asked the soldier if he would give something to her daddy for her. He didn’t look more than 22, but in a very adult voice said that he would try. When he asked what she wanted him to give her dad, the girl threw her arms around his neck, hugging tightly, and then gave him a kiss on the cheek- all to be delivered to Daddy, of course.
