Perspective

We were vacationing in Wyoming when violence broke out against the Iranian people last week. It’s hard to imagine the courage of the protesters.

I’ve had days when I thought, “Maybe I’ll wander over to the Federal Building and hold a sign for a couple hours. Then again, that new Judd Apatow movie is opening up. I wonder if I have time for both?”  

Never have I taken a stand when returning home safe was unlikely. 

A year and a half ago, I posted this picture of Tehran. While being in the Grand Teton National Park is fresh in my memory, I’m more amazed than ever by this photo. It’s borrowed from the unapolgetic mexican’s thought-provoking piece about the beauty of Iran. If cityscapes are not your thing, I encourage you to check out the photos at his site.

Peace and safety to our brothers and sisters around the globe who are taking a stand today. Thank you for making our world a better place.
