On the Late Prowl for the Night: Brief Notations & Remembering a Valiant Soul......

It has been a busy weekend throughout Outsiders.   The team ran across one of the periodic thoughts that it features on #Outsiders and decided to feature one on all #outsider properties on dreams--we are chasing a dream to transform the conversation about our World.

As I was working away, I ran across this.    The Poet/Songwriter Yaghma Golrouee has been detained in Tehran by Ministry of Intelligence Agents and is now at Evin Prison.   This clip (which I released to my personal Facebook earlier tonight) is dedicated to the Women of Iran and how he ends is just powerful beyond Words as he noted, "...at the end of the story, we will be free..." as he ends the video with a clip of Jafar Panahi's niece accepting Germany's top prize for his film, Taxi.   As all watch the clip, some will notice leading Iranian Women such as the actress Golsifteh Farahani, The Math Whiz Maryam Mirzakhani and the Enterpeneur and Astronaut Anousheh Ansari.    This is as he does such a maginficent job to feature the ordinary who make it all possible.

Onward to the New Week.....
