Heavenly yours
NEDA (26 years old), Fiance speaks out.
11:54 PM | Author: AgentPX

Got this from a Facebook account, the author is probably having trouble accessing his blog sites so I re-posted this for the world to read. This is a translated version of a post from this link.

Neda -- An interview with Neda's fiance. As I noted earlier, BBC Persia today aired an interview with Neda's fiance. Several readers graciously volunteered English translations. I'm posting the full transcript below -- it's long but very interesting. Her fiance says that the coroners asked to remove a part of Neda's leg (for apparent use for another person), that Iran's authorities refused to allow her family to hold a memorial service, and that Neda was not a firm backer of either Mousavi or Ahmadinejad -- she simply "wanted freedom and freedom for all."

Kasamin Makan, Neda Agha-Setan's fiancee, was interviewed by BBC Persia, noting that Neda would have turned 27 this year. "Neda's goal was not Mousavi or Ahmadinejad, it was her country and was important for her to fight for this goal. She had said many times that if she had lost her life or been shot in the heart, which indeed what happened, it was important for her to continue in this path," he said. iran-election
Considering her young age she has taught a lesson to us all.
About the day of the incident, Mr. Makan said: "When the clashes were occurring, Neda was far away from the demonstrations, she was in one of the side alleys near Amir Abad. Thirsty and tired or being cooped up for about an hour in the car in heavy traffic with her music instructor, she finally gets out of the car and, based on the pictures sent in by the people, armed forces in civilian clothes and the Basiji targeted and shot her in the heart."


"It was over in a matter of minutes, the Shariati Hospital was nearby, the people around her tried to bring her to the emergency room by car, but before that could even happen she died in her instructor's arms."Iran-Election-Aftermath-I-004
Mr. Makan added: "We got her body back finally yesterday with some diffculties. Of course, her body was not at the Tehran Coroner but at a one outside of Tehran. The medical examiners
wanted parts of her body, including a portion of her femoral bone but the chief medical examiner would not say why and no explanations were ever given."
"Finally the family consented just so they could get her body back as soon as possible, since just this issue could have resulted in delaying the reception of the body. We buried the body in a small area in the Zahra Cemetery in the late afternoon of 31 Khordad. Also, they had brought in other people who had been killed in the protests so it seemed that the whole event was scheduled to be such."
About payment for releasing the remains, Mr. Makan had this to say: "No specific amount has been paid at this time, although hospitals, clinics, surgeons and medical examiners have been ordered by the Iranian security services, based on various orders, not to list 'bullet wound' as the cause of death on the death certificate in order to prevent the families from filing international complaints in the future. I haven't seen the release notice of Neda's remains yet, but I will obtain it from her father in the coming days."Iran-Election-Aftermath-I-006


Mr. Makan regarding government ban of memorial service for Neda Agha Setan said: "We were going to hold her memorial Monday 1st of Tir at 2:30 PM at a mosque at Sharyati street north of Seyed Khandan. But Basijis and mosque officials refused our request for her memorial service so to avoid further public confrontation and instability. They knew that Neda was an died innocently, and people in Iran and the international community are informed of that fact. So they decided to avoid a situation where a mass rally would take place. In any way, we do not have permission for a memorial service for now."
However, many eye witnesses told BBC Persia that a large gathering took place with the intention of performing a memorial service at Al Reza Mosque at Nilofar square in Tehran. But the security forces intervened by throwing people out of the mosque and intervening with the service.iran-election-rally.preview


Mr. Makan also commented on fake pictures of videos claiming to be Neda at various sites:"I was looking at some sites including 'iReport'. There was a picture of a young woman with green signs from previous calm demonstrations and had claimed it was Neda before being shot. These pictures have no relation to the event. It seems that Mr. Mousavi's supporters are trying to portray Neda as one of his supporters. This is not so. Neda was incredibly close to me and she was never supportive of either two groups. Neda wanted freedom and freedom for all."


BBC Farsi tried to contact Neda Agha-Sultan's other family members but was told by a close relative of hers that, for reasons of their own, the Agha Sultan family could grant an interview."

Poem from the Rooftops of Iran
11:25 AM | Author: AgentPX

From the Video Author:

Subtitled version of "INJA KOJAST INJA IRAN AST SARZAMINE MANO TO" (link below) - a woman speaking about the state of her country while filming the rooftop shouting of "Allah-o Akbar" in Iran on Friday June 19th

This young woman is touching people's heart around the world, proving once again that we can relate as human beings despite our differences.


I don't understand how anyone can bring hatred - whether against Islam or against the West - to this wall. What do anyone's grievances and agendas have to do with her beautiful appeal?!
We hear this young lady's soul in this poem and we owe her our respect. May she, her loved ones, and the people of Iran be safe from harm.

Found this channel about a Young Teen named Kevin, raising and donating fund from YouTube Views. The video below made possible for him to donate around $1700k in one Charity. I hope Kevin discover this post and make a contribution to “Give a Life Foundation” here in the Philippines.

This Idea I think was initiated by YouTube because when you subscribe to the said channel you will also be ask if you also want to subscribe to other popular YouTube Channels like;
NigaHiga 

Smosh

HappySlip and ChristineGambito - also Happyslip’s channel

So Please go to JumbaFund Channel, watch some videos and subscribe. It won’t take much of your time. Promise.

Heavenly yours,

Vic

 

From the Video Author;

I want to start by saying this video was made around 8-9 months ago, but I've waited til today to launch this project :)


How this idea started: The idea started when I wanted to make a separate channel to KevJumba, where I could take my camera around and post casual videos often, something you don't really see on my other channel. Since I'm a YouTube partner, I can create multiple channels and earn revenue on this site based on the number of views I get. Rather than making a second channel to profit from, I decided I wanted to have this channel made strictly for charity,


When I thought of it, I knew it had to be done. What this means is that anyone who watches the videos on this new channel (including this one) are helping the cause by donating to charity. So to all my viewers that have been following me and watching my videos, I appreciate it. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to do something like this.

A short notes from God!
12:08 AM | Author: AgentPX

"What do I have to do to get your attention?
Take out an ad in the paper?"

"Earthlings, don't treat me like an alien."

"How can you possibly be a self-made man? I specifically recall creating you."

"You think it's hot here?"

"Could you imagine the price of air if it were brought to you by another supplier?"

"Will the road you're on get you to my place?"

"Need directions?"

"Please don't drink and drive, you're not quite ready to meet me yet."

"I think you're the most beautiful person in the world. Okay, so I'm biased."

"Follow me."

"Don't forget your umbrella, I might water the plants today."

"We need to talk."

The Final Question by Donald Swarbrick
9:18 PM | Author: AgentPX

I found this fascinating quote today:

          This one came from one of my Dear Friend Donald Swarbrick. His article caught my attention because I’ve been asking the same question that until now gave me no answer. Here it is;

"There is one final question which I cannot answer, and to which the answer is not even coded in the Bible and, will probably never be answered as we just do not know where to begin,YES BEGIN! That is almost the question! Where did the first grain of dust or atom come from? Or, where did the chemicals that produced the gas to create the first Big Bang originate from? The ultimate question in other words, how, out of absolutely nothing, did these ingredients appear, and accumulate to cause such an astounding chain reaction, exploding and creating such splendour and beauty throughout the vast emptiness that we now call outer space,"  Donald Swarbrick, Unfeathered Angels, Jan 2009

You should read the whole article here.

Heavenly yours,

Give a Life Foundation (Philippines)
4:47 AM | Author: AgentPX

This blog post is part of Zemanta's "Blogging For a Cause" campaign to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes that bloggers care about.

   Face_sepia_revd The Philippines is one of the poorest country in the World. Most of the families, especially the unfortunate ones cannot afford Hospital bills when they get sick. Though many institutions locally are helping them, everyone is  not lucky enough to be enlisted because of the overwhelming count. Only those children that need prompt attention are listed first inline.

Zemanta We'll be donating $6000 to non-profits/charities that get most blogged about in next 4 weeks. Check the event page for details at http://www.zemanta.com/bloggingforacause/

Zemanta

When I stumble upon Zemanta's "Blogging For a Cause" Give a Life Foundation is the first one that came into my mind. Probably because this institution mainly focuses it’s assistance to sick Children. Below is an excerpt from the said foundation’s official website.

“Give A Life children's charity, for the under-privileged sick and dying in the Philippines. Some of Manila's largest pediatric wards need your help. Your donations will provide life saving medicine and equipment for children from the poorest families in the Philippines. The Give A Life Foundation, ensures that 100 % of your gifts go to help sick children in the pediatric wards of Luzon and the Philippines ! Our primary goal is to replace and upgrade the equipment used in these wards. We have also created a new, cost effective and efficient systems for access to medicines, antibiotics, cancer drugs, medical supplies, disinfectants and soaps for the very poorest cases.”

My apology for posting below, pictures of the children needing medical assistance. I don’t want to be accused of exploiting these children but I believe people seeing  these would understand the true meaning of giving and caring for all those in need.

Give a Life Foundation won the top prize at the 39th Grand Anvil Award. It is awarded the GRAND ANVIL plus the ANVIL AWARD of EXCELLENCE. This highly prestigious award was presented by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines.

  

One of Give a Life Foundation’s on-going project worth mentioning is the “Refurbishment at the Jose Fabella Pediatric Intensive Care Unit” This hospital is the central lying in for  those women giving birth who cannot afford the high cost of private hospital’s medicine, room rate and amenities.

Just this afternoon, May 12, 2009 4:20 PM I received an email from Give a Life Foundation. Here is an excerpt;

Hi Sir Vic,

We want to thank you for creating the blog, we already saw it  and it was so good. Mr. Stephen Jarvis sent his warmest appreciation for making that blog. Thank you vey much and we really do appreciate what you’ve done. If you will be needing  pictures and videos that you can upload on the blog or in “you tube” we are very much willing to send you a copy.

It is the mission of the foundation to extend our service to children who are less fortunate in providing medication to their illnesses. We want to help those children who are sick, and yet they don’t have any money to sustain the medicine they need. It really hurts to see such incidents when parents beg for help, and those children who are suffering.
You’ re blog will serve as an eye-opener for those people who are able to help. Thank you for the effort and the time that you’ve shared with us.

More power and God bless!
Give A Life Charity Foundation

Reading the letter above, I cannot express the feeling that ran through me. Considering that I lost my Job on the day I wrote this BLOG, It is nothing than those children suffering as of this writing. But hey don’t worry. I’m always good at dealing with hard times.

So there it is, this blog post became personal …Oh look my tears are falling..hah..got to publish this update now. God Bless Us all.

I recently found a related article by a Blogcatalog friend. Please do check it out at Me Blogged U .

Thanks in advance for your help.
