Each one of us has to write a major life story essay. What do I mean? Let me explain. Our Iranian culture has to share stories that help out our next generations to value what we are coming from. Every cultural group has to be able to share their experiences and life changing events with their next generations.
Our children can only make informed decisions in the future by knowing about our experiences.
There is one major essay each one of us is requested to write. The requirement is a discourse, a concept that our future generations are going to create.
We owe our children the story of our lives, to let our next generation learn from our mistakes as well as our many rich experiences.
The amount of events that has made our Iranian life what it is now is too overwhelming, too painful, and too enmeshed to describe with one single essay. In any case we have to do this.
