    I can only think of the word “steadfast” when I think of the Baha’is in Iran, with these 7, one of whom is Mr Taqva, as a clear example. Please know that you are prayed for, held dear in the hearts of the people of the world, and that your pain,sorrow,fears and loss are what will bring about the true revolution in Iran. It will be the people of the world who will demand the freedom of your friends, families and all of Iran, and then light will again shine from that holy country.
