Act of solidarity
by Jeff Brumley
For one Baptist woman in Kansas City, wearing a hijab is a profound — and visible — expression of support for Muslims.
Martha DeVries has taken the concept of walking a mile in another person's shoes to a whole new level.
All the recent hostility around the nation aimed at Muslims, refugees and immigrants inspired her to wear the hijab on Mondays beginning in December and continuing through this May.
"I've just gotten very tired of hearing so many negative things, like Donald Trump's 'let's not let Muslim immigrants into the United States' and the scare on Syrian refugees," says DeVries, a North Kansas City, Mo., high school guidance counselor and the wife of a Baptist youth minister.
