    @mackenzi, in all fairness, I took that line out of context — that wasn’t the title of the piece, or the thrust of the piece. But it was frank, honest, and conveyed the sentiment of a lot of people who, like Cohen, are well-versed in the politics and daily context of what’s going on in Iran.

    I hope that we are seeing history being made. Like the Berlin Wall, like the slow, but inevitable death of Communism. My prayers are with the Iranian people.

    That started to read like a fiction novel. I had to remind myself that the people in that story are real, their pain is real, not some faraway imagination in some faraway place.

    It’s so odd to feel like you want to/have to/need to do something but there’s nothing you can do to help. This is someone else’s fight and they’re the only ones who can fight it. Or is it?

    I feel so sad. It’s so utterly sad when living creatures suffer.

    Thanks for the flow of thoughtful information, Xeni. My heart goes out to the citizens I’ve always had high hopes for. The citizens of Iran.
