We are just beginning to ignore the no-media-coverage fact when we get another email from the group and our faith in our power to change it all is once again, ok a little bit, blurred. This time Jawad, is suggesting that we join Facebook (I am not even sure whether I have the name right), to create profiles and to share pictures and to keep in touch, and I just have to sit and write a note on our blog, feeling inside the need to shout, to tell loud and clear to all our friends from around the world that if you do not see us joining the network, don’t question our friendships, don’t question our enthusiasm, and don’t think that the Iranians are just done with the whole experience and are gone living their own lives; I have to scribble this note to let others know that Facebook is just a very bad website, that the law is keeping us safe from accessing it, that we are off better with its being censored so that we can channel our energy into higher causes and virtual acts rather than spending all the time and energy for a website that is apparently unsuitable for our souls! It is not censorship; it’s just that we should be helped out in keeping safe the good souls we are inside! It is just a matter of point of view! For some of us it’s not as easy as “Let’s join Facebook.” Access is denied! Facebook is not good, and no matter how many Yallahs we say to ourselves, we won’t be having the page coming up on our computer screens. So here pops up another wall, and we wonder how many walls are there to conquer and whether it would be possible to conquer them all, questioning our strength to keep going and fighting to conquer them all? But then again, we remind ourselves that we are stronger, we adapt, we accept, we keep on building ourselves as people who believe in the good inside, who can, who will. So don’t pay attention to the nagging, just know that we are with you, with our cause and we will continue to work for it with our limitations, despite our limitations, with our strengths, our faith, and with that which is above all and is unquestionable, with the love for humanity and unity.
