Peace

Ostad Jalal Zolfnoon performs live with Morteza Falahati, Farid-ud-din Attar's poem, Ay del agar asheghi. This song was originally performed by Alireza Eftekhari, in his album Mastaneh, one of my most favorite collections of Persian music. A song full of sweet and sad memories for me.

To those of you who fasted during Ramadan, Happy Eid-e Fetr.

To those of you who are Jewish, Happy Rosh Hashanah.
To all of you who follow the rules of loving hearts, peace, and humanity, Happy Today.
Go love, hold, kiss, and celebrate all those who matter to you in your lives. Learn, teach, motivate, and stay focused on the business of love and respect for human life, for that is the only mission worth pursuing, praying, and sweating over in this world. Our world is threatened by flames of hate, greed, and ignorance, the remedy to which can only be love and understanding and responsibility by each and every citizen of this world, directed at each and every citizen of this world. No one has a right to threaten another's life and to violate another's right to peace. Remember and pray, and most importantly strive for peace. That's all you can do as an individual. That's what we all must do.
