  1. Good morning, Azin,
    Yes we need to speak up on behalf of others who do not have a voice, as you say.

  2. I am so happy to live here in Vancouver with my daughters.However men are changed from our fathers and most of the women are respected and admired nowadays,we need to stand for others who do not know even about their rights.
