Neda Agha-Soltan 

 
Born in 1982, she was a philosophy major, took singing lessons and hoped for a better future for her country.  I hope her death captured on video and spread across the internet changes that country for ever.


According to her fiance, she did not support a candidate in the 2009 Iran elections.
Update.
Great outpouring of emotion from our Iranian brothers and sisters over Neda.
Drawger is a collection of artists and illustrators and recently, several offered their reactions to the Iranian election and it's aftermath.
Here are a few:


Dave Gothard
Brian Stauffer
Edel Rodriguez

The footage above was sent to me yesterday and I am startled by it. 

This is an image born in Drawger and in hours traveled the world.  I've painting portraits that have affected people before but I'm pleased by the fact that this one gives so much comfort and power to those in pain.


Two comments have stayed with me but all have been apprecated.

The first is this (in broken English):
