Solidarity

Truth be Told
is your truth the only truth
that we must obey
that lacks grey
is absolute like the number one
is black as night
white as flight
won’t you listen to my truth
it’s pliant as the dancer’s legs
is grey as the winter sky
confused as infinity
open to suggestion
come feel my truth
(Sara Rahai, iranian.com, 2006)
Thinking of A and all the other bloggers, photographers and journalists who have been arrested or whose whereabouts are unknown. May they be safe, unharmed, and soon return to their families.

Amen to that.
And you found the perfect poem to bring home the point. Thank you.

Ann, there is some news regarding 'A' being set free tonight, but I will not post it until confirmation.

I'm glad for your support. I'd like to make you aware of this video. Jump to 00:27:10 if you don't like to watch the whole video. I think this is what most western countries deny but it is all connected.
