The cost of Freedom

There are thousands of people protesting in Iran right now, opposing the government. Iran is known for its treachery against its own people. The last protest resulted in the government calling on its powerful security force to kill dozens of protesters, which ultimately squashed the protestors. The protests are a rebellion against Iran's leadership, including the powerful Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. After years of an oppressive regime, a struggling economy and the cost of everyday goods increasing exponentially, Iranians have had enough. 

Freedom never comes easy and unfortunately, many lives will be lost, but that this is the cost of freedom. We should stand firm with those who protest the Iranian government because this sea of change is exactly what the Middle East needs.
