Standing by Iran

Iranian singer Andy Madadian along with American singers Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora sing this old Ben E. King classic. It is available to be downloaded and shared by the Iranian people here. It's purpose is to give voice to the sentiment that all people of the world stand together.

The handwritten Farsi sign in the video translates to "we are one". Indeed we are one with those who seek freedom in Iran and other parts of the world. We who are free stand with those who seek freedom. My God bless the efforts of those who seek to be free.


  1. Exciting and emotional times for our fellow human beings in Iran. After reading more about Neda Agha Soltan this morning I had Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young's Ohio in my head.

    "What if you knew her and Found her dead on the ground? How can you run when you know?"

  2. That last part is so gut wrenching Mike.. the tweets that I get from my Iranian student twitter friend are like that.. here's hoping for change in Iran.

  3. Indeed!

    It is so easy to go about our lives here in the U.S. and forget what is happening in not so far away lands.
