The Real Martyrdom

Many people more educated than I have written about the Iran protests.

As hard as he gets pushed, Mirhossein Mousavi has continued to push back even harder.

I'm not sure just why or how Mousavi ended up running against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and I don't know what the future holds for Iran in Mousavi's success, but as an American, I am shamed and humbled by the apparent nobility of the protesters' motives.

Are you watching, grown-up hippies? What have Americans done since the end of The Civil War to put their lives on the line like this?
