Dear Sisters,
When you wear your hijab and are rebuked or disrespected please stand tall and respond with calmness. The reason this is done is to make you feel less than human.If you must cry wait until you get home. We must stand up to these bigots and racists. We do not have to take their abuse. Even if you feel alone never show it and do not show fear. This is what they thrive on. We have no control over ignorance but we do not have to stand there and take their abuse in silence. Try to record the incident if possible. Stand tall and stay proud.
