I have been reading the book The Rich Merchant and the Parrot by Suzan Nadimi(based on a poem by Rumi, the Persian Poet) And at the end of the book I always ask my son: ” So, what mattered the most to the parrot? ” and He responds … every time: ” To be Free” …. at age 4 … There is wisdom in those three words uttered by a 4 year old… that even he can understand the most basic human need. I am proud of him….. and more so I am proud of anyone(especially the brave Iranian brothers and sisters) demonstrating for that basic right. Only time…..
