Hello. This is my flute!
It appears to be a musical instrument but in fact, it is an efficient weapon that has harmonized hearts of the freedom fighters
with the Iranian people and people all over the world.
I played my flute in a beautiful sunrise in Ashraf. Within a short time I saw a young boy playing the same tune in Iran and then I heard its echo all over the world…! I call this reverberation, one of a “common cause”.
I found this common cause in my childhood. I learned it from my father who was a political prisoner at the time. I found it in the sad eyes of “Farshid”, a poor young boy with little clothing in the brutal cold winter. He was selling goods for a living in front of my high school. Farshid would sell pens in the morning and in the evening he would polish shoes on the street. There are many “Farshid”s in Iran. Yes. In Iran, there are many children and young adults whose childhood and dreams have been changed to gloom and dark prospects because of poverty.
We, the People’s Mojahedin of Iran, are fighting to bring back the future for those kids. That is the reason we have chosen to be here and that is the purpose of our struggle.
The main lesson I have learned from my sisters in Camp Liberty, is that if I want to have “everything” for my people, if I want “all” their dreams come true, I have to sacrifice “everything”, including my education, my personal life and my interests. I see this sacrifice as an honor and I solemnly believe that one day I will see my people happy and joyful, in a free Iran.
That day, Farshid will be beaming with joy and I will be proudly sharing his smile.
