It was the spring of 1979. The change was in the air. There was hope and anticipation about a new Iran; no political prisoners, no corruption, no secret police or dictatorship. The future looked bright even for those of us who were not political. Change seemed exciting and empowering. We were friendly to the leftists and the Marxists, even though we did not understand them or trust them. We thought that all was good and a bright future was ahead of us.
And then we woke up to the nightmare of the Islamic Republic! Our dreams were shattered, even for those of us who were not political and just wanted to see a new face every 4 or 8 years to run the country.
And that’s the Way We Were in the spring of 1979.
