Although this is a few days old, I still found it incredibly touching. As someone who has dealt with positive and negative reactions to the hijab (recently a store owner told my sister and I to "Watch it out there!" in a friendly way) it is simply beautful to see people stand up for your beliefs. To see the older man whose son had come back from Iraq, crying while standing up for the Muslim hijabi - that's something beyond words.
