"Stand by Me" for Iran: Better Than "We Are the World" and More Righteous

"On June 24, Iranian Superstar Andy Madadian went into an LA recording studio with Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and American record producers Don Was and John Shanks to record a musical message of worldwide solidarity with the people of Iran. This version of the old Ben E. King classic is NOT FOR SALE. It was not meant to be on the Billboard charts or even manufactured as a CD. It's intended to be downloaded and shared by the Iranian people to give voice to the sentiment that all people of the world stand together. The handwritten Farsi sign in the video translates to 'We Are One". If you know someone in Iran - or someone who knows someone in Iran - please share this link."

Share it even if you don't. Reblog it if you can. Push the view count.

No I don't know anyone in Iran,but I can say that I really respect what these guy's are doing. I guess there no longer is a Voice of America that will play this (although I'm sure that we're still paying for it) now that Shamanny Hall has control. We don't want to upset anyone.

Viva democracy!

Ready and willing to stand with them. Give me the chance.

The State Department of the United States condemns and meddles in Honduras but won't meddle in Iran.
If we don't correct what is happening here, we will watch all the candles around the world be snuffed out.

This video got me, among other things, to thinking about Liberty and Tyranny. The same words have different meanings for different people. The people that are leading us into tyranny today have contempt for freedom as I see it but some with good hearts will use the same words to be used by those that do not possess a heart.

Just one more thing and I'll shut my pie hole.

I don't know how but I am now in my sixties. I keep telling myself not to feel so much sorrow for what is happening now, since I have the easy way out. Every time I almost let go, the figurehead utters something about being a nation of laws or international law and I'm sucked right back in.
I read this yesterday morning, it helped yesterday. "For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace."-Romans
Hmmm, it just helped again. Nonetheless, I'll do all in my power to stand against Americas enemies, domestic and foreign.
