Protest March

Tehran, Iran

I lived in an apartment above a carpet store in the main shopping area of Tehran. This photograph was taken from the roof of my flat during the Khomeini revolution in Iran. The protesters were aware of my presence. Indeed, after the women left I went down and was welcomed by the students and men. They told me, "We don't hate Americans, just the American government." That's a distinction I wish more of us could make.
