Last March I wrote a post about Nazanin, an Iranian teenager who had been sentenced to death for killing a man who was trying to rape her and her niece. Yeah. When I first read something like this, I fervently hope it is just a really tasteless joke. Tragically, this was not.
I followed the links to the online petition and signed. Today I followed up on Nazanin. Because of the tireless efforts of another teenager named Nazanin, worldwide attention was brought to bear and Nazanin was re-tried yesterday. Things look pretty good, although in such a barbaric country, you can never be sure. Please sign the petition if you have not. Trust that she will be freed. Once she is home, she will love reading the names.
