If you live in the West, you've likely heard mostly negative things about Iran, and it's been over 30 years that U.S.-Iran relations have been more than a little strained. But the images you see on TV don't reflect what life in Iran is truly like. In the course of conversation, someone recently asked me when the last time I went to an amusement park was, and I said "I think it was on my 2012 trip to Iran", to which he responded, "Wow, there are amusement parks in Iran?! I had no idea." I've also read comments underneath online articles about Iran saying things like "the people there all want to blow us up" "the babies are being raised to be terrorists" "all they care about is their religion and killing"....but you'll see that the people there are just like us. They care (for better or for worse!) about how their selfies turned out, how many "likes" their photo got on Instagram, eating good food, and spending time with family and friends. They have malls, amusement parks, and even rap music!
