I have just seen a very heartbreaking video footage of an Iranian girl after she was shot during a protest in Iran. Iran is in turmoil now and people would like to change the system. The video shows a girl sprawled on the street, she was shot on the chest. Her family tried to save her but she died. While the camera was recording her, she looked straight at it so we can see the expression on her eyes, then blood begins gushing out of her mouth and nose and her face was eventually covered with blood. You see the look of death in her open eyes; and her father shrieks in anguish in the background. It is at this moment in the video that the viewer's heart is really broken, it is as if you are also there. The girl in the video is known only as Neda and her video has become the voice of the Iranian people in their struggle for change. The video is very graphic that is why I am not posting it here, but if you want to wear a broken heart for a week, you can check the video out here but view it only if you can manage a broken heart.
