    Sometimes freedom comes at a very high price – I hope the Iranians get the freedom they want and have their votes counted as cast.

    It's shocking to see the images coming out of Iran. But i am glad that they are giving voice to what they believe. Despite how everything turns out, I believe overall Iran will be heading in a new direction and the people might have more voice.
