Having previously discussed my love of finding that people really do care about the world, allow me to narrate a tragic discovery on my part...
Walking around a few months ago, I was so impressed to see everyone in Palestinian scarves. WOW! The world had stood up and taken notice... or had they? Later that week as I walked into a fashion store it all fell in to place. There wasn't a sudden, mass consciousness on the Middle East crisis, the Khimaar had somehow been transformed into a high fashion item.
So as the season changes and the new high fashion rushes in and replaces the old. The Khimaar, which is a representation of the living dream of millions to return to their rightful homes, will be shoved into the back of the closet, along with skinny jeans and houndstooth jackets. And in the event that someone actually does wear their Khimaar in solidarity after the season has passed, it'll just look like they're old fashioned.
