Iran has been in the news quite a bit lately in a scary, sabre-rattling way. I’m posting this view of my kids up on the hill above Persepolis, the ancient capital of Persia, smiling in the sun. When we just hear the geopolitical opinions about any country in the media it’s easy to mentally flatten the diversity of people and history of place into a one-dimensional ‘good’,’bad’,’friend’,’enemy’ descriptor. Pictures like this help me remember that every country has it’s own history, something which is important to the people that live there and that those ordinary people live ordinary lives wanting the best for their children, to be able to work at their chosen profession and relax and have fun sometimes.
