I have been following the Moose on my phone devise for the past few weeks and have been especially gratified to see all of the support and interest in the events happening in my former second home of Iran. Thank you all for the passion directed at the brave women and men of Persia these past few days.
I am so excited about the dialogue here that I have decided to call to have my internet hooked up as soon as possible.
That being said, I finally see the world recognizing the amazing strength, education and desire for justice I have always known Iranians possess. The scene of students protecting a fallen ‘enemy’ brought tears to my eyes and reminded me of the gentle yet strong people I grew to love during my time in Iran.
In the lead up to the election, as I realised that this election was going to be stolen from the people, I sent a prayer out for the safety of those who would be enraged by the injustice of a stolen election. Having lived through such an atrocity in this country in 2000, I think many of us understand the rage and betrayal of such an event.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Persian people these days.
On a more personal note, I have missed you Mooses, and hope to be back on the tubes soon. While I have now figured out how to post a diary, I cannot for the life of me, make this little device allow me to post a comment. For now, I am thinking of all of you, and cannot wait to get my computer up and running again.
Peace to all of you.
