A young Iraqi Christian girl is among those who have lost everything at the hands of brutal Islamic State militants.
Now living with her family in a half-built mall in Northern Iraq, the child recently had a stunning reaction when a reporter asked how she would retaliate against the terrorists, if given a chance.
"I won't do anything to them," the child, named Myriam, told SAT-7, an Arabic-language TV network. "I will only ask God to forgive them."
When a reporter for the Christian satellite network asked if she, too, could forgive the Islamic State, she responded, "Yes."
In addition to Myriam's compassion for her enemies, she also explained just how profoundly her life has changed since she and her family were driven from their home in Qaraqosh, Iraq, and are now living in the Ainkawa Mall along with many others, according to the Christian Post.
"We used to have a house and were entertained, where as here we are not," the little girl said. "But thank God. God provides for us."
When she was asked to elaborate, Myriam said God loves her and the other Christians who escaped and that he "wouldn't let ISIS kill" them.
Watch her responses below:
Other children also shared their perspectives about what it's like to live in the mall with many other refugees who have been left with few if any possessions after fleeing from the Islamic State.
"Jesus will be with us no matter where we go," said another child named Flourine.
