Over the weekend, I ran across a post about World Hijab Day. I decided to participate this year.
So I didn't wear a full hijab, but more of a headscarf. I also invited the Muslim student in my class to bring a hijab to school and talk about it. She is only nine, so she doesn't wear it all the time.
I was very aware I was wearing it all day....I had some looks at school, but I just explained why I was wearing it....I really didn't go anywhere else, except to pump gas.....it was an interesting experience.
Got lots of compliments on it actually....I just felt I needed to show solidarity, in light of the things that I are happening in my country.
