dialogue in the streets







The President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, came to my neighborhood this afternoon. He was invited to give a speech at Columbia University.

Broadway was filled with people, different opinions and most importantly, open honest dialogue that evoked passionate debate right in the streets of New York City. Forget about institutions of higher learning, everyone has an equal opinion on a beautiful New York City autumn day. The streets break down diplomas and background, a public space brings the realness and honesty to debates- thoughts and passions. It was beautiful to see people exchanging ideas and beliefs. In these trifling times of confusion and misunderstanding, the visit by this president brought many issues to the table and in the streets. If was inspiring to see people exchanging ideas in a true public forum.

love and health to all...
