The Real Iran

I am reading this book right now. It's called "Not Without my Daughter" and it's a true account of an American woman who accompanies her husband and their 5 year old daughter on a trip to visit his family in Iran. Once there he refuses to allow her to return and she is kept a prisoner. It's a shocking and often very depressing tale and sometimes I wish I could fast forward to the "happy ever after" bit I'm praying for. But it makes the daily sights on our TV screens of the tensions in Iran following the recent elections, all the more chilling. We often forget how lucky we are here. But don't worry, I'll always be here to remind you!
