|Dariush The Great Prayer For Iran: I ask you Almighty God to protect Iran from |
Enemies, Drought/Hunger, lies & Deceit (A Prayer For the World)
It has been quite a week on a multitude of fronts. One critical thing I was so proud of was when I released an update from Radio Free Europe on two enterprising Iranians developing an updated version of Telegram--Telegram is the messaging app that is used by 40 Million Iranians which was ordered blocked by Iran's Judiciary--I can't wait to download it!!! I was also proud of the five women who in Iran dressed up as Men to get in to watch the key Match for the National Football (Soccer) championship as captured by Tavanna last week as all who were at the Stadium cried out, "Reza Shah, Rohat Shaad..." which means Reza Shah, Rest in Peace:
For those who may not know who he is, Reza Shah is known as the founder of Modern Iran with all that he did. As I was working away, though, I thought about the choice and the legacy of purpose. What I hope to be supportive of in the work of the Daily Outsider (as it evolves), the Community Projects & Initiatives to live up to the admonitions at hand:
The three controlling desires of every normal man seem to be:
First, to live. Not merely to exist.
Second, to be a man among men.
Third, to do that which will endure.
- James Hulme Canfield
Lives of great men all remind us, we can make our lives sublime,
and, departing, leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The way you get meaning into your life
is to devote yourself to loving others.
Devote yourself to your community around you,
and devote yourself to creating something
that gives you purpose and meaning.
- Mitch Albom
