If this makes you and me cry, now just imagine the parents who watch this who will never have this happy ending in their life because their kids will never be coming back to them? Oh God please help those parents in their grief and help the soldiers in the battle fields. May all the parents and all the soldiers have this happy ending from now on.

Someone hates on soldiers, saying they're baby killers blah blah: Its your opinion thats ok Someone talks about God or Jesus: SHUT THE FUCK NOONE LIKES YOUR OPINION KEEP IT TO YOURSELF AND STOP SAYING STUFF LIKE THAT!
Eillo Alfa (4 years ago)
This is supposed to be a video capturing a happy moment to put smiles on people's faces. Don't put negative energy in the mix like that. Everybody has an opinion. But it doesn't mean you should blab it to the world about bad stuff in a positive atmosphere.

Troy Young (5 years ago)
How on earth can people vote down a video that shows a mother's love for her child?  On this earth, there is no greater love that that of a mother toward her children.  Yes, I know there are a few exceptions to that, but for the most part, it is true.  I, for one, am glad to see such a happy momma. :)

you are a true muslim..
Rhino h (5 years ago)
media has many americans fooled that muslims are the enemy when theyre not. You are just trying to live the same as us and be left alone but the amount of control through media and every facet of our lives has had us tricked. I know I was after 9/11 and it took me joining the military to realize the truth. Thank you for being peaceful. I love you brother or sister and all of you good muslim people. There are bad in every group but you can tell a good person when you see one. With love from U.S.A
Rhino h (5 years ago)
Exactly brother. I am prior military and Im ashamed of how our politicians got us involved in bringing down muslims because from what I saw none of them wanted us in their country. Even when us troops were genuinly trying to help the mess those before us created. We the people need to stick together and take the power from the criminals that run this world. Were all just trying to live and these assholes have us fighting each other and if we dont we rot in prison forever. Sickens me. Plus the
