A friend in Iran has directed me to websites where I found these shots. It is a sudden and stirring example of bravery and devotion that has brought hundreds of thousands to the streets of Tehran and elsewhere. Many are holding signs condemning the regime as a dictatorship. And many are paying a high price. This is beginning to take on the feel of the revolution of '79, with Ahmadinejad and his sponsor Khamenei in the role of Shah. Wishing for a miracle for Iran . . . and the rest of us.
