Courage

Today, in Iran, a number..a huge number of people took to the streets to protest the recent vote in that country. They felt, according to what i've been reading, that the vote was rigged and that the current government should be defeated.

i have to admit that i don't know if the defeated candidate would be the best for Iran, perhaps he would be. i do know that the current administration needs to go.

However, this post is not to dispute or determine that subject.

What struck me is the passion of the people. They, according to their own statements, are ready to be beaten, struck down and die for what they believe is the right cause. They have taken to the streets - some have been fired on from the government - some have died already - and they are letting their voice be heard.
