Beautiful Burkini

While others were prancing around half-naked, Halima Aden showcased her modest burkini at a Miss Minnesota
USA beauty pageant.

Such attire made her not only a fashion standout, but also a religious one.  Hoping that this courageous choice would help to “combat misconceptions about Islam,” Aden “became the first fully-covered Muslim woman in the contest.”

Celebrating diversity, Aden now asks:  How boring would this world be if everyone was the same?  Bigots might wish to come up for fresh air and ask themselves the very same question.
