“I will be on that boat attempting to escape the madness. What about you?” I asked an audience of about 100 people on June 8.

I ended my my Book Talk, sponsored by Los Altos Voices for Peace, with the photo and the question above.

Photo shows desperate Syrian refugees on an overcrowded boat hoping to cross the sea and arrive on the Greek island of Kos. The tragic events unfolding in Syria reminds me of my own journey of escaping Iran for a chance to find peace elsewhere in the world.
