n a year when some of the most exalted public figures in the United States distinguished themselves by advancing unjust causes or cowardly refusing to seriously resist them, a pregnant mother imprisoned in Sudan with her 18-month-old American son set a standard for saintly courage.
Meriam Ibrahim is the role model of the year.
When a Sudanese court told Meriam she must renounce her Catholic faith and convert to Islam or be hung by the neck until dead, she gave a non-negotiable answer: No.
Meriam was born in Sudan to a Christian mother and a Muslim father who abandoned the family when Meriam was 6. Her mother raised her a Christian.
In December 2011, in a Catholic church in Khartoum, Meriam married U.S. citizen Daniel Wani. A Catholic priest witnessed their marriage; the Archdiocese of Khartoum certified it.
Daniel had emigrated from Sudan to New Hampshire in 1998 and was naturalized in 2005.

Meriam — a Portrait in Courage.
Heroine - and that word’s not used lightly.
A follower of Christ
Why wasn’t she Person of the Year instead of the obscure and overhyped Ebola doctors?
The mussies venerate a dead prophet buried in a box ....
A woman with that much dignity, perseverance and class doesn't need a meaningless label. She is Person of the Year, whatever group or person gets the magazine cover.
I agree, grania. The accolades of this world are seldom given to a true witness of Jesus Christ because the world looks solely on the outward appearance. Meriam is truly precious in the sight of God and will be rewarded greatly for her example of perseverance, bravery, and her trust in the Lord.
That woman has a hundred times the guts Obama ever did.
This is what “core values” look like, if you are ever asked.
“In a story published more than two weeks before Meriam was sentenced to death, the Morning Star News quoted Daniel saying that the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum wanted DNA evidence to prove his imprisoned son, Martin, was his in fact his son.”
So when are we going to get DNA tests to determine the identity of Obama’s father?
