Hunger Pains

It’s only 11:28 AM and I am hungry.  When the hunger pains intensify, I remember that Nasrin is suffering much more than I am.  

Sotoudeh’s husband, Reza Khandan, described her conditions in solitary confinement, saying, “There are no facilities in solitary confinement. She was just given a book, her eyeglasses, and a heating pad. She is currently living in a cell with three walls and a door and those items I just listed.” 

 

I’m warm.  Drinking green pomegranate tea.  This is not that hard.
