My cousin found hope in DoctorZIn,

I had a phone conversation with my active cousin in Iran who seemed really aggravated about the political situation in the country.

Usually he's very upbeat about his activism, but like many Iranians he's lost hope.

He told me "europeans have sold us out and americans don't care anyway"... I reminded him of the activism in the US, reminded him that freedom comes with a price and it's never free, i named several American friends who're trying to get the truth out about Iran--i also told him about DoctorZIn's ping list on FreeRepublic. Out of all the things we spoke of he was most energized by the story of an American who spent his time for freedom in a country he has never visited...

He said tell him "thank you....maybe one day we can repay you..."

Next time you speak to him tell him that MANY Americans care, including President Bush. What we're doing in Iraq has as much to do with Iran as anything. We're fighting the EU over Iran and there is more going on behind the scenes then he could ever know. And though that's discouraging for him, he has to keep the faith because it just takes time.
