Frankie, my husband isn't concerned so much for his parents, as they will stay safe in their home outside of Tehran, but for his sisters. One of whom teaches at the University in Tehran and she has a son who is 16. His other sister's husband is young enough to be forced into service if this ends up being a civil war. I believe she also works part time at a university but not sure where. He's very worried for his nephews and young cousins.
What about your family?
