A Letter to Michael Moore

Mr. Moore,

You are certainly wrong about the Shah of Iran: “Shah” means king in the Farsi language.

First, the USA did not give this title to him (as you were mentioning to Ali Velshi in the MSNBC conversation about Iran recently.

The Shah earned this title as a second (2) king of dynasty Phalavi.

95% of your information about Iran’s history is wrong. The Shah was very a peaceful king, not just in Iran but towards all the Countries of the world, including the USA. 

Being a peaceful king does not mean he was a puppet. You are very wrong. 

The Mullahs’ ( Ayatollas) current administration in Iran try to be the same, good and peaceful too. But the war mongers’ agendas would never allow that to happen.

Mr. Moore, tell me which side are you on?

“Christmas is marked on the 25 December (7 January for Orthodox Christians).

Christmas is a Christian holy day that marks the birth of Jesus, the son of God, according to the Christian religion.

The story of Christmas

Jesus’ birth, known as the nativity, is described in the New Testament of the Bible.

The Gospels of Matthew and Luke give different accounts. It is from them that the nativity story is pieced together.

Both accounts tell us that Jesus was born to a woman called Mary who was engaged to Joseph, a carpenter. The Gospels state that Mary was a virgin when she became pregnant.

In Luke’s account Mary was visited by an angel who brought the message that she would give birth to God’s son. According to Matthew’s account, Joseph was visited by an angel who persuaded him to marry Mary rather than send her away or expose her pregnancy…” (BBC)

Happy Mother’s Day!

Anna_jarvis

Face Activities extends a Happy Mother’s Day Greeting to all our members and their mothers, around the world! Millions of us will gather with our families to celebrate the most important person in the world–Mom!

There are as many ways to celebrate the day as there are mothers, of course. Traditionally a nice breakfast, or brunch, is followed by a card, along with a cake, flowers and gifts, and fun activities and outings throughout the day. And for many, religious observances are part of the celebration. There have been many celebrations of mothers and motherhood throughout human history, dating back to the ancient world, but the modern holiday of Mother’s day is a relatively new tradition.

The holiday now has a strong commercial side, but the original founder, Anna Jarvis, strongly rejected the growing commercialization around Mother’s Day that she observed in her lifetime. A peace activist during the American Civil War, she had campaigned for a holiday to honor and celebrate mothers since 1905, following the death of her own mother.

Jarvis celebrated the first Mother’s Day in 1908, as a memorial to her own mother, in West Virginia. Thanks to her efforts, by 1910 West Virginia had adopted the day as a state holiday, and by 1914 President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation, setting the date for the national holiday we know today. The holiday eventually went international and is now celebrated all over the world.

As the holiday gained popularity, Jarvis maintained that hand written notes to mothers, rather than store bought greeting cards, expressed the proper holiday sentiment, and she organized protests and boycotts against greeting card companies, called for law suits, and even went as far as protesting a candy convention and a meeting of a War Mother’s group, where she was arrested for disturbing the peace. She was most definitely passionate about the holiday she founded, perhaps to the point of extremism.
