Save Nazanin

I don't normally get political on this blog, but this is a cause that I think most people of any political ilk in American could support.

Nazanin is a young Iranian woman who killed a man who was trying to rape her and her niece in a park in a suburb of Tehran. She's been sentenced to death for her "crime." I don't know that anything can save her now, but her case needs attention from the civilized world. If you'd like to read more and sign an online petition, go here.

I signed it, Paula. How awful. I hope a lot of people pay attention, but I fear that we are overloaded with negative information. I notice I've gotten numb to a lot of it.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
