Despite the fact that two men armed with knives had just murdered a soldier and dumped his body onto a London street on May 22, four women on the scene were not afraid of standing up to the terrorists and trying to stop the violence.
Three women rushed to the victim’s side, even as the two armed men — one of whom has been identified as Michael Adebolajo – loomed over his body. An eyewitness stated that he saw one of the women, who has not yet been named, actually approach the men and ask if she could go pray for the victim. “She is a very religious woman,” onlooker Joe Tallant said. “She saw everything and wanted to comfort the man.
