Twitter Revolution & Beads…


I was born in Iran, my family left 31 years ago when I was 14 during the revolution that changed the life of 75 million Iranians, the old government of Iran, although considered a dictatorship by some, was in fact a 100 thousand times better than the oppressive violent one that took its place in 1979.

Forever it seems many Iranians world over, inside & out of the country have been waiting for the moment that would bring an end to this mad government & free them. A moment that would take Iran back to a time before the Islamic Republic was in charge, a time where Christians Jews & Muslims practiced their faith as they wished, a time that women worked & dressed as anyone in the west does, where men & women could walk down the street without being married, where women had rights & were treated not as 3rd class citizens…

What we see & hear in our media today about the protests against the fake elections, is perhaps the start of this change & thank goodness there is Twitter to let it all come out…so we all know what is going on inside the country, while reporters have been kicked out, cell phone towers shut off & satellite signals jammed…sadly as it looks like people want change, it is important to note even the guy people are protesting for was chosen by the supreme leader, who is the real guy in charge, to make change he has to go…a twitter revolution may just change the everyday life of 75 million people, who want the same thing you and I have, the right to live a happy free productive life…
