Stanley Campbell, the executive director of Rockford Urban Ministries, packed up and headed to Iran, a country many would never even consider visiting. He did it because he wanted to get a feel for what the Iranian people want, not what their leaders want. He says just like you and I, they want to be able to raise their kids and achieve prosperity. He also says they welcomed him into their world.

"I'm glad we were able to bring this message of peace to Iran and return her and encourage our government to speak to Iran and try and not get involved in another war," Campbell says.

Campbell hopes people will put pressure on lawmakers to seek out peaceful solutions, not only in Iran but in Iraq as well.
