My name is Mahtob

You may remember the film "Not without my daughter" starring Sally Field. That little girl is grown up and telling her own story, and Glenn Beck interviewed mother and daughter tonight. After experiencing the physicial and mental oppression of women in Iran, and then their amazing escape, she needed to learn not to hate her father. Glenn asked her how she did that, and she said it was attending a Lutheran school and her teachers telling her Bible stories about God's love and protection. Title of her book is "My name is Mahtob."
 Mahtob Mahmoody, on her own, and in tandem with her mom, has spent much of her life sharing her message of hope and inspiration with audiences throughout the world. She is a harbinger of peace not hatred, of forgiveness not bitterness, of celebrating the good AND the bad experiences in life that mold our character. Drawing the best from her Iranian and her American heritage, Mahtob employs anecdotes from her life to illustrate the beauty of a multi-cultural existence.
