Romie Shaked was at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Wednesday night, ready to board Delta Flight 152 to Tel Aviv, when everyone was asked to wait at the gate. It was nearly 10 p.m. when the 12-year-old Israeli girl grabbed an empty seat in the terminal.

The girl, returning from a summer spent with friends in North Carolina, sat down next to Elias Abuelazam.
