i've been captivated by everything happening in iran right now.
i've been glued to andrew sullivan's site which has been on top of this shit like maple syrup on a waffle.
so go green on facebook, please. it sounds stupid and small but everything that lets all those young people there, fighting for freedom and putting their lives on the line...we should do what we can to let them know we're watching. we may be otherwise helpless but we care and we support them.
anecdotal stories sent in talk about fake numbers, ballot boxes being tampered with so even if they were to recount, i think the ballots themselves are likely faulty.
andrew also has a lot of heartbreaking video of the police ruthlessly running down the streets and into peoples houses and beating the lives out of them. it's horrendous. for all my debauchery over the weekend, i thought about this a lot. i was as afraid the day of their elections as i usually am on days of my own.
so watch the videos. see the pictures. pray for these people.
