  2. My life on Iran would honestly suck. I wouldn't have any cool technology like I do now or any nice things as a matter of fact. I probably wouldn't even be here in school right now. I wouldn't have many friends, and e government would be awful. It just wouldn't be fun.

    I think my life would be different because we would have certain restrictions of what we could do and what we couldn't do because she can't wear certain clothes and she is not supposed to listen to music so my life would be very different there because we can wear whatever we want and listen to whatever we want.

  5. I think that it would be different because it would be a lot harder to live like that and since the country would be like really hard to worry about dying because of how much they have been bombed and also how she had described it was like really hard to Survive without a lot of the food we have today.

  9. My life would be different because in Iran you don't get as much freedom. For example freedom of speech. and to have such a good school.

    My life would be very different if I lived in Iran. Many of my everyday activities would change. I wouldnt be able to go out with the same limitations, dress the way I do, or even do extra activities as simple as listening to music. Every time I would go outside I would be scared that I would see someone get arrested or me, myself get arrested.

  11. Life would be different because there is fighting going on in Iran and here in the U.S there is no violence with other countries taking place. Also there wouldn't be all the technology and other new things we have here.

  12. It would suck so much! Their would be sooo much fighting and it would be really depressing. I would hate to wear specific clothes and listen to specific music. I love music and I dint want anyone telling me what to listen to.

  13. I think that our classrooms our clothing and our media would be different. Our schools would be smaller. We would have less kids in our school, and have less teachers to teach us. Our clothing would be not designer and women wouldn't have much of a choice for clothing. I don't know much about the music is like but it would be different from american music. Tyler H

  14. Well first off all I would have to wear those scarves which wouldn't be fun at all. And it would be scary because I would be afraid of 1) getting exacuted 2) tortured. Plus the police seem very harsh especially because they call woman "sluts" honestly that would be a terrible living condition/situation. Another bad thing is the schools aren't very good. And who would want to have to run to the basement/ fly to the ground everyday for bomb warnings. It would be WAY to different for me!

  15. I think it would be a lot harder because I'm all into sports and if I lived there it would take that away. Eddie Jansen

  16. If I grew up in Iran I'd probably be uneducated and a lot of my family would be dying from fighting in the war that they had. I wouldn't be able to have everything I'd want and I'd have to settle for less than most kids want.

    I wouldn't have as many things like I have now and I wouldn't have such a good education. I also wouldn't have as much money as I have now and My family would not have a nice house like we have now and we also would not have our family business.

  18. If I lived in Iran my life would be a lot different especially because a lot of my freedom would be gone we wouldn't be able to own all the nice things we have or any thing that we use for entertainment like t.vs iPods iPads or cell phones we wouldn't be able to go to a school and our lives would be altered very badly and some of our close friends and family or ourselves could just die because of the government

  19. My life would be reduced to rules and what people want me to be not a choice of what want to be I wouldnt have the freedom for anything and I would have to everything in secret, also, my education would be destroyed and I wouldnt have anywhere to learn anything for future life, this is all I would know. I would loose friends for a long period of time, but overall it would probably make me and everyone know (that is still alive) closer than we ever were.

  20. We wouldn't be the same or even close because everyone grows diffrently. And everyone would be very diffrent from what we are now from people living in Iran rae you crazy everyone would either be a crazy mad man that always says that the world is going to end tomorrow and that dooms day is coming but he's been sayin that for the past 2 years

  21. If I lived in Iran I would not be able to do many of the things that I do every day, like listen to music or watch the tv shows that I liked. I know i would be a lot better off than the girls, but still I would beaty limited. I would probably have a higher chance off going to jail for some every day activities.

  22. I think my life would be a lot different. You couldn't really speak your mind because the government wouldn't allow it. But for the people who are living their this would just be life as they knew it

  24. If I lived there instead of here it would be different because I couldn't hunt white tails in the fall and then I couldn't hunt turkeys in the spring time. But it would be fun to live there for a week or two.
