We close 2013 on a hopeful note. The recent interim deal between the P5+1 and Iran over the latter’s nuclear program could be the starting point of increasingly positive, albeit cautious, relationships between the two countries. We are hopeful that further agreements will open doors for mutual understanding and increased collaboration between the people of Iran and the U.S.
I am proud of the unique role that PAAIA FUND, PAAIA INC, and IAPAC have played in giving a voice to our community, promoting a peaceful resolution to the nuclear impasse with Iran, celebrating our ancient culture and heritage, and facilitating the path of success for our youth.
During 2013, in collaboration with other organizations or independently, PAAIA FUND:
Similarly, PAAIA INC
As we move into 2014, we do so with optimism for what we can accomplish to increase our influence in the U.S., build bridges between the people of Iran and the U.S., and support our youth as they become the future leaders of the U.S. and the world.
I have noted this before and it bears repeating. Being an Iranian American is a privilege. Serving our community is an honor. Thank you for allowing us to serve our community. We hope that you will join us in doing so in 2014 and the years to come.
Wishing you and your families a happy new year and a healthy and prosperous 2014.
