ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Americans are following the UK's example in wearing safety pins to symbolize peace. 

Following the election, many Americans have expressed their concern and vulnerability for what is to come next. 

In return, people have been pinning the safety pins to their chest when they go out in public to show that they are a safe harbor. 

Twitter users have posted pictures using the hashtag #safetypin and #safetypinAmerica to show their support for others. 

A Twitter page was eventually created titled @SafetyPinUSA with the goal to spread unity across America.
