Our Iran

My heart is with the Iranian people.

Friday was their Presidential election. It appears as though the entire episode was a sham.

Now the people have risen in revolt. They want their votes counted.

I stand in solidarity with these brave men and women. And I hope President Obama continues to express his desire to see the Iranians allowed to protest without fear of reprisal.

When Russia bombed Georgia in 2008, then Republican Presidential contender John McCain said we are all Georgians, however the U.S. stopped short of having any meaningful impact on the situation.

Today I pray that we are all Iranians. And that Americans would show their support for this nation of people wanting rightful representation.
