Such wonderful news!

Back in 2009, American hikers Joshua Fattal, Shane Bauer, and Shane's fiance Sarah Shourd were sent to prison by Iranian police on charges of trespassing and suspicion of being American spies.

Then in 2010, Sarah was released, but both Shane and Joshua were kept in prison until September 2011, when they were freed thanks to the effort of Amnesty International, the prisoners' families, other human rights organizations, and Sean Penn.

Their strength through this lengthy, horrific situation is incredibly inspiring to us!
