YOU CAN'T STOP THE REST OF US- AN INVITATION TO THE WORLD


#iranelection
For a while now, I haven't had anything to say, but, today is different. As I watched the news report that the Iranian people are not being allowed to gather to memorialize Neda, the young woman martyred
during the people's attempt to protest the injustices in their country, it occurred to me that we could hold the memorial for her, in our homes, in our streets, in our gathering halls. We could, because the repression and intimidation can not reach all the people world wide, where ever we may be. Who will join me, now, in holding a memorial in this good soul's honor? I am making a memorial votive in her honor and keeping it lit for a month. What can you do to join me? Be creative. There is no stopping us now. We have heard the call of her name: #NEDA; We have heard the call of our brothers and sisters in Iran call her name. May we join them, for there are no limits now, we can be a united people world wide......

My brother has joined a group on twitter that greens out their picture in support of the iranian protestors. I think i will light a candle for her.

We should light candles for ALL that have died in senseless wars and violence. So many people in all cultures just want food and shelter for their families, and to be loved. The protests in Iran are not about politics, but the freedom they want to seek those basic elements of peace in their lives. I think the world is exhausted and tired of fighting, and Neda represents the last straw. Her life is precious, as is everyone's life, and we should all change the world-view of being gentle and loving to maintain the sacredness of life. No more war!!!
