Thirty years ago Iranians were forced to leave Iran and have since given the worldwide Diaspora a more meaningful definition.
Of all the countries where fleeing Iranians have settled in, whether by choice or happenstance, the ones lucky enough to land in places with level playing field, disproportionate to other migrant, they have blossomed more and at times even surpassing the average natives.
This is not an idle boast; in any field of endeavor it will be hard to not notice Iranians at mid and top echelons. There are many who have created tens, hundreds and thousands of jobs, invented things or devised programs that benefit mankind in short have been a positive force.
Therefore my hope for Iran is that which has proven to create the ideal ground for Iranian saplings to blossom and bear fruits benefiting many. I hope for an Iran where gender, race or creed is no longer the defining measure of a person, I hope for an Iran with a level playing field.
