This is a message from Ali, the voice of democracy, the man from Iran, the Middle East, and the United States of America (USA).

It is with great sadness to say the Iranian in the  world has lost a great freedom fighter. He is a man that followed his family’s legacy and footsteps and became one of the leaders of democracy in the 1980’s. He is a man that stood for freedom of speech and freedom of human rights in Iran. He is survived by two brothers and four sisters. He told me one day “Ali my nephew, you only live once and in life you must take a stand for something so that you can always be remembered for what you did to help mankind.”

This great man was my uncle, Farshied KHALATBARI.  May God rest his soul. He went to the heavens on the 29th day of April in the year of 2006. I wish for all Ali’s men and women all over the world to take a moment and say a prayer for this great man. He taught me many lessons in life. He taught me how to listen, learn, and respect people. He stood for democracy and freedom. When I saw him for the last time he told me to send this message “It is time for all of us to change the scope of our lives and remember you only live once so be kind to one another, love one another, help one another, because we all only live once.” God Bless my Uncle. I will always remember him in all that I do to save our people in Iran. God Speed and I hope one day that I will see you in the heavens. But for now, I will see you in the stars. This is in the memory of my Uncle Farshied, man of vision and honesty. Remember, we can do this together, one person at a time, one vote at a time, one country at a time.
