“Stand Up – Step Forward” might be my personal, intercultural, and political slogan this Autumn.
So what if the numbers are small?
So what if the cries fall on deaf ears?
Keep pinging on the radars of the piratical.
Remind them that while they have lost theirs, others more human retain the gift of good conscience.
Let that sweet looking old white haired fella look in the mirror and feel the blood of innocents welling up around his ankles.
Does talk make a difference?
I’m a Jew.
I believe in the pebble in a pond.
I believe in the goodness and the rightness of Rayhaneh Jabbari and the result of her self defense.
Update – October 1, 2014
“An Iranian woman due to be put to death for killing a man she said was trying to sexually abuse her is reported to have had her execution postponed.
Officials said on Monday that Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, had been transferred to a prison west of Tehran to be hanged.
But activists claimed on Tuesday that an online campaign had persuaded the state to give her a 10-day reprieve.”
The only thing I want … from God, from people around the world … in any way, in any form, is I just want to bring Rayhaneh back home,” Pakravan said in Farsi, which was translated by FoxNews.com. “I wish they would come tie a rope around my neck and kill me instead, but to allow Rayhaneh to come back home.”
