Ashkan stood blindfolded, with his arms spread outward, and a sign that read, "I am Muslim, not the same as a terrorist. Do you trust me? I trust you!"
At first, people didn't really pay much attention.
But then this woman came up and said, "I trust you," and gave him a hug.
Then the hugs came rolling in!
This sweet woman said, "Of course I trust you. Of course."
These two greeted him and wished him good luck.
And this person paused for a brief moment before smiling and coming in for a big hug.
If you weren't melting already, this man approached Ashkan and said, "I love you, sir!"
And then these cuties came by!
At the end of the day, 142 people had given Ashkan a hug.
