"Koorosh Afshar," voice of the burnt generation, I salute you. You words reverberate in my head and around the globe. It is only you and your friends - your scarred generation - who can exterminate these ticks and fleas and take charge of your future. It IS your inalienable right to dream, to speak your mind, and yes, to assemble: to choose.
It is about the choices we make in our lives. Twenty-four years ago we made a choice. It was misguided. It was wrong - a bad choice. We were disappointed with the flaws of one man's vision and the greed of his cronies, so we handed over the whole thing to another myopic leader disguised as a spiritual leader and his gang of thugs: worry beads in one hand, and wielding a club.
It IS a global village, and as such, we need to show our neighbors respect and share our love by keeping our house clean and our yard picked up so rodents and pests cannot find refuge on our land. "Khooneh-tekoony" is long overdue after 24 years of medieval grime.
There is no better place than where you are and no better time than now. The place is HERE, and the time is NOW; it is time.
