In Memory of My Friend, YY

Today remains 20 March 2010.

Happy Nowruz!

Which is the Persian New Year, the first day of Spring.

Autumn 1971, at Oklahoma State University, my college roommate, YY, was Persian.

YY earned a mechanical engineering degree, and returned to Iran to help build his country. Unfortunately, Iran was under the heel of the Pahlavi dictatorship, since CIA had re-installed The Shah in 1953, overthrowing the democratically-elected government.

YY returned to Oklahoma State in 1978 for advanced study. In 1979, after the pseudo-Islamo fascists overthrew the Shah fascists, YY’s father, a prominent physician, was detained and tortured to death, for no reason.

YY soon thereafter, in sorrow, perished by his own hand.

In memory of my friend and comrade, YY.
