This is the World's Revolution

While I can certainly understand the wisdom of analysts who insist this is not about America, the unfolding events of the Iranian crisis has become a cause celebre of the whole world. The Millenial Generation especially, with the internet, cell phones, laptops, and social networks, see Iran's struggle for freedom as their own.

It is true that this is not about us, and the less our elected leaders publicly say, the better. But we live in a global community, and what happens to Iran affects us all. It is our responsibility to support the people as much as possible. And, yes, that includes the seemingly minor gestures like wearing green.

Remember, kids. Rosa Parks helped to destroy Jim Crow without lifting a finger. Literally. Now it's your turn.
