At the airport I had a sign that said “Japanese-Americans in Solidarity with Muslims” and at one point I was directly across the street from a guy that had a sign that said “Japanese-Americans Against Unjust Detention”! I waved at him until he saw me and then we gave each other thumbs up signs.

The coolest part of the demonstration was when the Gyro Chef food truck rolled through slowly and everyone cheered. The trailer had loudspeakers blasting the Star-Spangled Banner and there were signs all over that said stuff like “Proud Iranian-American Immigrant” and “I Love America” and “I Respect You, You Respect Me”. I was hoping he’d give everyone free gyros, but he didn’t (to be fair there were like five thousand people there). It was great advertisement for his business, so if you’re in Atlanta, eat at Gyro Chef!
