Thursday marks 300 days that Shane, Sarah, and Josh have been held in
detention in Iran. We don’t want this day to go by unnoticed as
Thursday marks 300 days that we have not been able to spend with our
loved ones. While the mothers were visiting them in Iran, Shane asked
my sister, Nicole, and I to take a day off from our efforts to secure
his release and enjoy ourselves. He asked that we write to him in
detail about this day because reading our letters allows him to escape
prison in his mind.
We, the families, are asking that all of you take a day for yourselves
this Thursday, May 27 and document it for Shane, Sarah, and Josh. At
the end of the day, you can share your stories, pictures, and videos
on the Free the Hikers blog at http://blog.freethehikers.org/.
Please join our blog and create a profile via the ‘Community’ tab at
the top of the page in order to post directly. If you have difficulty
doing so please contact fa...@freethehikers.org. We know that Shane,
Sarah, and Josh would love to be with all of you enjoying your
experiences on the 300 day mark but for now they live through your
words and support.
