On the eve of President Ahmadinejad's visit to New York City and Columbia University in spring 2008, I went to my nearby park to record some long held thoughts. Recorded simply off my laptop, long before the repressed "Green Protests and Revolution". Prayers go out to the people.
I had been writing and calling Iran's embassy and UN Mission to help Iran see they had a golden opportunity to do some great for all in the world. With so many eyes on and so much concern for their nuclear program, they had the ability to turn the tables, to lead in the world, to get the rest of the nuclear countries to reverse our beyond destructive track. The threat of nuclear weapons and weapons material needs all our focus ASAP. This was recorded during the tenure of President Bush. Over a year later, President Obama's call for a nuclear weapon free world was more than most welcome. We need all the help we can get. We can do this. Completed April 2008, nyc.
