This month, June 3rd, Keith Broomfield died in Syria fighting along side the Kurdish Protection Unit (YPG). He felt God wished him to leave his job and pay his own way to go and fight against ISIS.
His sister, Jennifer, received this text message: “Sometimes you got to be a man whether you want to or not. I don’t expect anyone to understand but I don’t need anyone to either. I appreciate your concern and take it as a kindness.”
She commented: “My brother died to defend my sisters who are being sold, enslaved, raped and murdered and my brothers who are shot and beheaded and dumped into piles of trucks.”
