Working long hours never felt this good

Originally Published 7/17/2009 Working fifteen-hour days after five hours’ sleep has never felt so good. Things are moving at the speed of light here, where we are working to make United4Iran happen. Every day’s work involves a life cycle of emotions- joy, anxiety, grief, frustration, humility, gratitude. At least daily, one of us looks at the other and in some form expresses incredulity that things have come together so quickly. I run emotional in the first place, but to see the world coming together to express solidarity with the people of Iran who are suffering is beyond moving. Out of the hundreds of emails a day, so many of them ask what they can do to help, to contribute, to volunteer. I have never been so proud to be a member of the human race. -Tania
