Free voices still sing.

Kashan University, July 2009

Above: This striking video is making the rounds on the FB and is posted here
at Revolutionary Road, with an English translation of the song and sentiments.
How appropriate on July 4th, the living, beating heart of humanity reaches out
through these voices. An inspiring example of peace and beauty for the ages.

From the translation:

My schoolmate
You’re with me and going along with me
The alphabet stick is above our heads
You’re my spite and my woe
Our names have been carved
On the body of this blackboard
The stick of injustice and tyranny
Still remains on our body

Above: More brave voices from the earliest demonstrations (I believe).

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
