Political Cartoon: “Candles” By Kaveh Adel Iranian American Cartoonist
When someone passes away, many light candles.
When someone is remembered, many light candles.
When someone is imprisoned, many light candles.
When someone is missing, many light candles.
When many feel pain on the other side of the globe, many on this side light candles. And vice-versa.
When someone’s birthday is celebrated, many light candles.
When someone is loved, another lights a candle.
They why would anyone want to extinguish the candles?
Millions went out in the streets of Tehran a few days ago to remember a young man, Morteza Pashaei, who sang with his heart. His life was cut short by cancer.
Many sang his songs, many lit candles……and thugs arrested people for assembling, put out the candles and tried to disperse the millions…….unsuccessfully.
Many more candles were lit despite his flame fading out.
For all those who exercise their right to light a candle in this world and burning bright.
