"The Tyrant and the Parrot"

By Kaveh Ahangar Adel
"I have been reading the book The Rich Merchant and the Parrot(based on a poem by Rumi, the Persian Poet) And at the end of the book I always ask my son: " So, what mattered the most to the parrot? " and He responds ...every time: " To be Free" age 4... There is wisdom in those three words uttered by a 4 year old...that even he can understand the most basic human need. I am proud of him..... and more so I am proud of anyone(especially the brave Iranian brothers and sisters) demonstrating for that basic right. I call this one "The Tyrant and the Parrot""
