Today I got to meet one of my heroes: Rick Steves. Mr. Steves gave an incredible talk on the filming of his new special on Iran. Iran is a fascinating country, and it was great to learn more about the real people who live there. It is very inspiring to see Rick use his resources to promote understanding of the Iranian people and culture, and I was very impressed with his view of the world and the statements he made. He has also been meeting with his senators and elected officials to teach them about this country that they are so afraid of. If I am able to contribute as much to humanity as Rick Steves has before I die, I will deem my life to be a worthwhile success.
