Nobel Peace Prize Recipient Harassed for Defending Baha'is

(If we lived during the early days of Hitler and we began to notice what was happening to the Jews, what would we do? I for one, am bringing this to our attention and adding my voice and electronic pen to the outcry.)

Nobel Prize for Peace winner Shirin Ebadi talks to Channel 4’s International Editor Lindsey Hilsum in her Tehran office about harassment her legal work is facing. Defending the seven charged is lawyer Shirin Ebadi, winner of the 2003 Nobel Prize for Peace. But now she too is facing harassment for her legal work - and her defence of women’s rights.

“I have received a few telephone threats in the last few days. They ask why you are continuing your work when we’ve closed your offices. You should stop all activities, not that we close one place and you set up in another. The callers are anonymous,” she tells Lindsey Hilsum.

I started this blog post with the intention of showing you how the aquariums are doing but the disturbing news continuing to pour out of Iran took precedence.

Anyway, here are the fish and their new friends.
The Aquarium Store on the other side of the island is open only a couple days a week so my visits have been few. They had a beautiful octopus - whose new owner will have a special environment created for it. I love watching feather duster worms and got two for the new tank to enjoy while we wait for another cleaner shrimp to arrive.
Here are our clown fish. The tomato and skunk are in the new tank while the two Ocellaris in the original tank have an algae-eating kole to keep them company and clean up a bit

Too bad about the lack of peace for the peace prize recipient! I'll keep her and her clients in my prayers.

The sea animals look simply beautiful!

When David and I were looking at houses to buy, I saw a huge salt water tank that occupied a wall. The filter sure did make a lot of noise.

Does yours?

Mahalo for your prayers. Those are the most powerful of all influences.
My tanks are pretty quiet most of the time. When I activate the protein skimmer, it aerates the water inside the filter box and that makes a little noise- which becomes background "white noise" after awhile.
