I am an ESL teacher in North Carolina, USA. I have wonderful Iranian students whom I love. They are smart, sensitive, loving – and know more about American culture than their American counterparts. I shudder to think that our government would dare support an attack on Iran. To destroy any aspect of this ancient and beautiful culture would be blasphemous. Unfortunately, there are provincial, ignorant, short-sighted politicians in the US who are beating the drums of war. They don’t understand that Iran has a right to self-determination. God save us from them.
