Sami Rasouli spoke to the Unitarian Society of Menomonie at Mabel Tainter Theater March 12th.
Rasouli spoke of his recent visit to Iraq and what he saw during his trip.
Rasouli told of how he believes troop presence in Iraq is not the answer and spoke to the people of peaceful ways to make the area better.
"They are not getting the whole story. They need to find out from someone who has first hand witness,” said Sami Rasouli.
Rasouli is a resident of the Twin Cities and makes similar speeches throughout the area.
He plans on going back to Iraq to spread the message of peace again soon.
