Comment of an American I am so pleased you are in Iran and sharing their human-ness. Wow aren't we all really the same - small world isn't it really? It gives me a sense of unity and "sameness" worldwide despite the differences in race, religion, geography. 88

Sa’adi (1184–1283) Human beings are members of a whole, In creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, Other members uneasy will remain. If you've no sympathy for human pain, The name of human you cannot retain! 89
