Allow myself to introduce myself.
I am an American twentysomething raised in a small town in the Midwest (Population 700!). I now reside on the East Coast.
As you are well aware, this planet is changing quickly and we are all being moved to facilitate (or resist) those changes. As opinions polarize, I have planted my feet firmly in Love. Not so much the daft way, but in the lets-look-for-(re)solutions and recognize-what-we-have-in-common sort of way.
I would like to meet you.
P.S. If you really want to get to know me you should email me: bri (at) lovevolution (dot) org
A Media Artist's Response To Failing Diplomacy
When BriAnna Olson's pacifist views were confronted by an adamant American couple, she decided to heed their challenge and head to Tehran-- the epicenter of the Axis of Evil nation.

Like jesters of a modern-day Magellan, they've returned with stories and insights to a culture few American's have seen first hand.
