I love the Iranian people

June 14, 2009

I spent a few years loving one of them quite intimately in fact. I’m thinking of him today as I see the reports, videos, pictures of protests. I doubt very much that he’s taking part in any of that mind you; he fought in the Iran-Iraq war, but since then tried to focus on his studies and his business aspirations and avoided politics as much as possible. However, I recall his voice distinctly as he commented on Ahmadinejad during the last presidential campaign. “That guy is crazy. Crazy.” Anyway, I feel very connected to Iran and hope that whatever happens in the coming days, they are somehow able to engender a new wave of reform.
