Upon arriving, I received some stares, but nothing my husband or I felt were negative, just curious. Throughout the store was the same, though there was one couple that seemed a bit uncomfortable and would hurry from the aisle if we came down it. Oh well. To each their own, I suppose. When we got to the self-checkout lane, the gentleman working those lanes came rushing over to help scan our large items with a big smile on his face. As we were leaving, the young woman working the other self-checkout complimented my scarf and talked to me for a few minutes before we headed to the car. She is Muslim, and I see her there all the time in her beautiful hijabs.
Overall, today was an amazing experience, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful event!!!
