Day One

Day one, and there has been ominous activity here in Tehran at the American Embassy. Scores of fanatics have been stirred into a frenzy by the religious leader known as Ayatollah Khomeini. We are in a considerable disadvantage by this rabble who intends to hold all of us hostage. Our immediate future has been shrouded in doubt. We did not take the opportunity to get out. This mob appears implacable while their intentions are not clear. I only wish to know how long they will keep us here.
