Several weeks ago I, along with millions of others, watched the cell phone video of the murder of a young girl on the streets of Iran. It haunted me that we witnessed her final breaths yet were powerless to do anything about it. In a country that has, for centuries, suppressed a woman's basic rights, we watched them squeeze the very life from one. Her family was prevented from having a memorial service.
Yesterday, I got an email from a long time friend who has, over the years, become a world renowned sculptor. She too had seen the video. She too wept. Then she took action the best way she knew how.
