My husband and I actually ran into Khizr and Ghazala Khan on a street corner while visiting Washington D.C.They are the Muslim Gold Star parents who spoke at the Democratic Convention. I recognized them and they were so gracious and warm. We thanked them for their sacrifice and for speaking out. They spent a few minutes talking to us about the election. Mr. Khan patted my husband on the shoulder when we said goodbye, and we wished them well. I will never forget this encounter.
