  • I wanted to write Sohrab,Yaqoub was written.I wanted to write Yaqoub,Mehrdad was written.I wanted to write Mehrdad,Neda was written and I wanted to write Neda,IRANIAN was written.

Where should I start? It is more than a day now , I am trying to write something about Sohrab and I am not able to.I think to myself ,he was so young and i have to write something about him being so young then i change my mind and try to write something about his heart being full of hope but i remember he was shot right below his heart.

I read everything that has been written about him and try to concentrate but i can not.I am not able to look at his eyes-too innocent,his last smile on his face when they are washing his dead body-just immortal.I watch his funeral video and his mother's efforts and howls to see her son's face for the last time ...and I am speechless, everyone is.There's nothing left to say and it is so sad.

That is not fair.Where is humanity? Why should I be that useless? What kind of world is this that i must seat faraway form my homeland and just stare at monitor and see such violence is happening to my people?

Every time i read or watch one of them is dead or going to be executed , I feel a piece of my body separates and the empty place fills with rancor.It is to hard for me to close my eyes ,everything is passing in front of my eyes like a horror movie and i am waiting for the moment of revenge.Those vampires who are sucking our people's blood do not have to die , they would be released by death. They have to suffer as much as Neda's eyes asked us, as much as Sohrab's smile was immortal, as much as Mehrdad was lonely when they found him,as much as Yaqoub was innocent and as much as Islamic regime has made us suffer in 30 years and specially in past 4 weeks...

Right now,it is so hard to say I have hope and to be honest it absolutely is a lie but because this exactly is what Iran Islamic regime wants,us to be disappointed
, then there is no other options rather than being realistic and finding hope some how and shout loudly " Death to Dictator "

May they all rest in peace...

The first image of a young innocent life fading away before my eyes was this image of this young man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD0DK5B-GtY&feature=related
I do not know who he was I just called him and others who followed him to heaven the “Children of Lesser God". Today seeing the images of young Sohrab, I wondered if the young man in this video was Sohrab. Will you or anyone who might know that please post a comment.

It is heart breaking not to know who were the people who lost their young lives right before our eyes. The end of their lives are etched in our hearts and minds for ever but we do not know anything about the beginning of their lives. We do not know their names, we do not know their likes and dislike, their aspiration or what made them laugh. We will never know what they would have become but it is important we learn something about them so we will never forget them.

Please try documenting the identity of people who lost their lives. Please start a campaign of memorializing them by looking at the videos on YouTube and put name to their lifeless body. Tells us how we can write a word or two to their loved ones in Iran and let them know we share their loss and their pain.
