Humanity is phenomenal when the best of it steps forward. It started when a woman saw a passenger on a train quietly take off her hijab, presumably out of fear of being targeted. The woman said to the passenger, ‘Put it back on. I’ll walk with you.’

I’ll walk with you, I’ll speak up for you and #Illridewithyou.
