we owe a lot to ferdowsi

by hoomangolshan

after iran fell to the invaders from arabia, our cities were burned to the ground, our people slautered, our librabries burned, and our people sold into slavery.  After going through this initial shock, our nation and people started to regroup, and reassert themselves.  one of these iranians was ferdowsi, who around 1000 years ago, after 30 years, gave the iranian people the shahanameh, which helped to give a rebirth to the iranian identity.  he is a giant among iranians, along the likes of cyrus, darius, reza khan, and mosaddegh.  may his soul always rest in peace.
