Iran has arisen!!!
Yesterday saw Iran once again marched as Iran remembered Mahsa Amini on the 40th day of her murder by the Iranian Regime as they marched in over 200 Cities. Just in her birthplace, the estimates was some 50,000 people---and the regime forces did not dare to intervene. I wrote in tribute to her when I noted that although she is asleep, she woke up a nation and the World.
As I was writing and reflecting, I decided to listen to a classic from one of Iran's leading lights, Mehdi Yarrahi on his tribute to the Mothers who lost their loved ones during the Aban Uprising of 1398 (2019). I thought it to be ever so appropriate as Mothers are again burying their loved ones. Nika Shakeri, another of the martyrs, is approaching her 40th Day and the martyrs of Zahedan (where the regime gunned down mourners in cold blood), is also before us.
As I reflected upon the past 40 days, I can't help but underscore: The Women of Iran have led the resurrection and renaissance of Iran. May the almighty bless them all:
As I finished off some research and curation work for the Daily Outsider, I also picked this up from him as a tribute to the Revolution: All I know is this:
Light will overcome darkness
