Short moment of silence…

…for Iran, and Neda.

I am awash with grief for a woman I have never met, and would likely never meet. I can’t say it better than said by, of all people, farkers (posters on fark.com, who have been faster and more accurate with information than any news source), so I’ll lift a post that has made the rounds.

MadTheologian: brigid_fitch: Vertically Challenged: globalwarmingpraiser: AnkhX10.0: globalwarmingpraiser: Neda, May your soul be sped to God’s right hand and your sacrifice be the inspiration for the freedom of millions. Killed by those that would pervert faith for power you have became inspiration for millions. Libertas Vel Nex. May you rest in the arms of god.

Peace be unto you

So say we all.

So say we all.

So say we all.

So say we all.

So say we all.

So say we all.

So say we all.

Many are giving their lives to get information out of Iran and into the world’s view – I know especially in the United States, we have difficulty getting information about international events, and what we do is severely diluted. Please, take a moment and visit https://sites.google.com/site/tatsumairanupdate/ or http://iran.whyweprotest.net/news-current-events/ , or if you are on twitter, you can follow the iran tweet grid (#iranelection). It is all we can do to know, and to find anyway we can to help. If you are techy, they need proxy servers. If you are political, they need support protests even in America. If you are not any of these things, these human beings fighting for freedom just need solidarity. Learn and love.

“First they ignore you
Then they laugh at you
Then they fight you.
Then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi

//stepping off my soapbox, I’m sorry for the political tangent – we now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

About rhysfunk

Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe. After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world. Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.
