All the more reason why we should support them if not in action or deed then certainly by word.
‘You know I feel kind of embarrassed that I may TALK a good game of dissent but those people are sacrificing their lives for freedom.’
I know. I feel the same way. I sometimes wish I was there. I don’t exactly know what I’d do if I WAS there, but sitting here watching video clips and reading coverage of the events just doesn’t seem good enough. Maybe I’d feel a little better if we had an American president instead of a Kenyan national who’s taking his orders from some of the worst dregs on the planet. An American president would speak on behalf of us and on behalf of all freedom-loving citizens of the world. This douchebag doesn’t know what to do.
Don't we all.
The Iranian people are standing up, unarmed, to a brutal dictatorship, and giving their lives for their freedom. They are facing up to odds that we Americans will never have to face in our own internal struggles to come.
I hope we remember them well, and do them (and our ancestors) proud this coming 9/12 in DC.
