Forever Under Construction

A Program

Posted in Iran, Middle East, USA by homeyra on March 27, 2008

Rosa Schmidt Azadi is an American married to an Iranian. She’s a long-time peace activist with a background in anthropology, education, and public health. She’s also one of the people who walked away from the falling Twin Towers on 9/11 and returned to help with the recovery effort. Out of this experience of destruction, death, and horror came a deeper commitment to human life everywhere and specifically to non-violence. Retired and splitting her time between rural New York and urban Iran, Rosa Schmidt is doing all she can to promote world peace.

Her articles:

Part I : Democratic aspirations in Iran and the Middle East
Part II
: A six-part program that’s good for democracy in the U.S. and good for democracy in the Middle East, too

        I read the first article of Ms. Azadi’s you’ve linked. She’s very direct. I like that. Very cool stuff. Thanks, homeyra.

        Peace

        Thanks for reading Pagan Sphinx:)
        You see few American who have actually lived in Iran who write online. I thought her point of view might be of interest.
