This Theme Day is in support of our missing City Daily Photo blogger from Tehran. As a blogging community we support his continuing involvement in this community where he posts photographs and stories about his city. This community works toward breaking down the barriers between cultures and peoples and, in its own small way, making the world a more peaceful place to live.

Furthermore, as an individual, I support the Iranian people in their endeavour to shape a society to their own liking. It is not a struggle for western style democracy and freedom. It is a struggle for self-determination. I am a small part of a world-wide hum that recognises that my emphasis on the individual should not necessarily replace their emphasis on the collective or the communal.
I stand on the sideline in thoughtful contemplation of a people wronged. I support self-determination for all peoples through communal watchfulness. The world is a community. The world is watching.
