There is no period at the end of this sentence, for she is still alive and fighting

Wow. Great links- I totally agree with Ida Lichter's article, we should "adopt" these women and their causes. These Iranian woman prisoners may be in Iran, but their struggle is relevant to the U.S. There is no greater thing than what they are doing, standing up for democracy even at risk to themselves. If there are any ways anyone knows about to campaign and help them I would love to hear.
