Song: "Ageh ye Rooz" ("If One Day") by Faramarz Aslani
at left was created
by Koohestan, of Iran. He writes, "The intent of my video is to share with the world
Iran's deep rooted beauty. Despite what any media outlet would have you believe,
Iran is a country with breathtaking land, magnetizing culture, rich
in history, and people overflowing with life."
Please everybody, do what-
ever you can to ensure that diplomacy and peace prevail.
The time to act is now.
Iraq: more than 650,000 civilians
and over 4,474 Coalition soldiers - dead from war. Darfur: over 400,000 people, dead. Israel and Palestine: over 5,400 people since 2000. The Congo: 3,000,000 since 1998. Pakistan.Chechnya. Afghanistan.
New York. Sri Lanka. Lebanon. Our Sons and Daughters. Husbands and Wives. Sisters and Brothers. Parents and Friends. It's enough already. All you "leaders" out there, listen. We - the people - want peace, please. NOW!
