It's Time For Freedom For Iran

Great article about Iran from Roger Cohen:

The world is watching, and technology is connecting, and the West is sending what signals it can, but in the end that is true. Iranians have fought this lonely fight for a long time: to be free, to have a measure of democracy.

It's true. We sit on the sidelines, watching from a distant. But it's out of our hands. The United Nations, nor the United States will help. The words of leaders of all Nations can wash across the planet and make an impact though. If nothing else, they can at least let the people of Iran know they are not alone.

We watch, we pray, and we hope that the blood and pain that the Iranian people are enduring will lead them to freedom.

It's an old saying, but it still rings true...Freedom is never free. It's bought and paid for by the brave willing to sacrifice to have it.
