I am following the people of Iran in their struggle for democracy closely in my heart and prayer these days. My heart takes fire from the young people risking their lives to help a new nation come.

Take young Neda Agha Soltan, killed by a single bullet this past Saturday, her killing caught on video for all the world to see. Young people writing their souls online. One student saying “I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe I’ll be killed. I’m listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs…I write these words for the next generation so they know we did not surrender to despotism.”
