It took me a long time to summon the courage to see Maziar Bahari’s story of unlawful incarceration in Iran, Rosewater. It seems our daily diet of Muslim atrocities on our television sets has made me not want to seek out more for my entertainment.
Rosewater left my town before I could bring myself to see it. I had to drive an hour from home. It was worth it! The message of courage and love, which Rosewater contains, will resonate across the entire world. It will bring hope to oppressed and repressed people everywhere.
