On Friday afternoon, President Trump signed an executive order that immediately suspended admission into the United States by citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries. The so-called Muslim ban set off unplanned protests in cities and airports across the country.
Taken overall, the protests and demonstrations have been inspirational. But they’ve also contained little stories, tiny moments of grace, that will knock you off your feet. My favorite of these stories features a Capitals fan.
