From Iranian Blogger: 'Maybe I Will Be One Of The People Who Is Going To Get Killed'

This is a repost from an Iranian blogger. It was posted yesterday, referring to today's demonstrations. The original blogging site has been taken down:

I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow. Maybe they will turn violent. Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed. I’m listening to all my favorite music. I even want to dance to a few songs. I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows. Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow! There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see. I should drop by the library, too. It’s worth to read the poems of Forough and Shamloo again. All family pictures have to be reviewed, too. I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye. All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them. I’m two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that. My mind is very chaotic. I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure. So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them. So they know that our ancestors surrendered to Arabs and Mongols but did not surrender to despotism. This note is dedicated to tomorrow’s children…”

How many Americans still have this kind of guts. We forget our own revolution in this country too easily.

This man's words clearly say 'I may die for freedom tomorrow'. Good luck brave man, I hope you live to have brave children of your own, your country needs them.

If a new revolution is successful, it will prove that freedom is something to be taken by the people, not given by a foreign country invading your land and handing yet another puppet government to you.

This will change the middle east in ways that all of the bombs in the world could not and cannot change. Freedom comes from within.
