Iran, with cellos

A friend sent me this link to an online slide show on Iran. My friend spent several years living in Iran, first during his high school years, and later as part of a Peace Corps training program.

His message is this: Iran is a beautiful country full of "cordial, generous, and smart" people, though as in any country, some not so kind in spirit. Let's respect this country and not respond to this current crisis by bombing the life out of yet another nation.

The slide show shows a beautiful and cultured country. Sure, it's biased--women are presented in an ideal light, and there are no photos of poverty, political and religious persecution, or people held hostage.

But it puts a human face on this "axis of evil," and is worth taking a look at.

And, yes, there are cellos!
