WAS IT WORTH IT?










I am still as shocked as many who watched the 26 years old Iranian girl,Neda Agha Soltan dying on YouTube,after being shot by agents believed to be that of the government last Saturday,during street protests over that country's June 12 presidential elections.


As outraged as the entire world was and still is,over the senseless killing,the President Ahmadenejad's led government have not offered words of consolation to the family of the slained girl.


Even though Neda is now being described as a Martyr,come to think of it,was this whole shame worth sacrificing such a beautiful and promising soul all in the name of a presidential election?


Today,supporters of the defeated candidate,Mirohussein Mousavi plan to release thousands of balloons with the message ''Neda,you will always remain in our hearts.''
True words indeed!

This is so sad. I was sad to see this video on youtube. Just like you asked does it worth it? No, the election did not worth killing for.

Now, another June 12 to remember in pain!
