To your safe return, Jafar

To your safe return, Jafar
by KavehAhangarAdel

I have been always thinking about reasons so few have control over so
many. And how the bold are punished for speaking up about the
injustices. Is it something in our nature that forces us to be
attracted to the few who want to control us(no matter how evil they
are!) ? In any case, I wanted to shed light on one of those bold souls
whom I admire: Iranian director Jafar Panahi was imprisoned recently
for being bold. I am throuoghly influenced by his films the White
Balloon and the Circle. So, to your safe return Jafar.

Where Are these people when you need their support ?

Here is mine for what it's worth :
