I feel for Iran their young, the attentive, the desperate who did not vote for Ahmedinajad. He is a troubled man in a very sad and frustrated place. I listened to very well educated caring Iranians who expressed frustration and sadness and a desire to get off the hard line against the US and to have a moderate come into power. These being people who want to make a living not war, who are motivated by commerce not dominance. It is a sad day and many people will be killed demonstrating. We struggled through 8 years and two corrupt elections and thankfully the crassness of the corruption began the shift here in America that we are seeing. Sure this period (Obama) may not last it could be "cut down". Somehow I think the unknown effects the unknowable (magic) has already begun the healing toward a better way of living.
Although moments ago I watched a women driving her Escalade alone...with the license reading essentially "hockey Mom". I wondered if she was one of the disbelievers of Global warming. She seemed unaware. Or maybe she is aware but she doesn't give a care...there are millions like this.
No, my focus today is IRAN, my sympathies go out to the demonstrators and I am sad and fearful for them.
Spirit /soul gives me hope. No matter how much the "powers" that be try to dominate they fail ultimately. The Young and unhappy take to the streets and they change things...look what happened here.
