Beliefs can be dangerous. Religious, political, or romantic, they all share one thing in common: they require unconditional acceptance despite all information to the contrary. In teenaged bravado, I came to scrutinize all the beliefs that had been imposed on me and found them wanting. A tall, dark stranger, a revolutionary from an exotic land, drew me to him by the very differences in beliefs and mindset he represented. I sensed the danger in him, but what could be learned, or what new comfort zone attained, seemed much more important to me. As a result, I found myself trapped in the turbulent Iran of 1982. It was a place of contrasts: stark hostility, gracious hospitality, beautiful arts, harsh theocrats, ancient architecture, dress, and ways mixed easily with those of the modern day.... Lost in a flood of foreign passions, I was eager to adapt and learn but unwilling to surrender the civil rights I took for granted as an American. When I bore my first child and was given no rights in raising him, I rebelled utterly.
