Iranian culture and pride

by comments on

Iranian culture and pride has been preserved mainly because of small number of us Iranians who left Iran.  This should come to our thoughts whenever we felt sorry about leaving Iran. 

Frankly, I am so glad that I left and don't have to live in Iran any more. All left in Iran are underground activity.  Seriously.  It has to be called an underground and illegal activity when you are officially/legally not allowed to dance or spend time with your family in a small family gathering. 

I know they do "this" and "that" in Iran, but it's illegal, which makes it an underground activity encouraging the presence and involvement of opportunists, rapists and briberies.  Poor children who think that's the normal way to live.  Be illegal and against your own government all your life.
