The first time i read about death of a blogger, was death of Azita, author of “Zane Rashti” ( Rashti woman), a 34 years old female blogger from a northern city in Iran who was living in Tehran, the capital. She had a challenge with breast cancer and was writing daily events of her life from a feminine point of view.
The time she started blogging, there were not many Iranians who knew what blog and blogging is. But i can say her death made a big difference in the Iranian blogsphere. Since a journalist wrote a report on her short life of blogging and her death in Hamshahri newspaper, a best selling paper in Iran.
Her death made me sad, for i was part of the farsi blogsphere that time and i was reader of her honest words and liked her style of writing. Now i read another news today, the sudden death of a young female blogger who battled for a freer media in the restrictive Saudi Arabia kingdom.
Hadeel Alhodaif died last Friday after failing to emerge from a coma she fell unexpectedly into last month, just two days after her 25th birthday. She was author of Heaven’s Steps.
I dont know why. She just reminds me of Azita, who dared cancer and battled for a better life with a better end maybe? And now about Hadeel, i have a similar feeling. Really i have the same sadness, the same mourning.
Did it happen for you that you have a musical instrument which nothing comes out of its strings but a harsh sound? Then someday you meet an expert musician and he/she plays a nice song with that instrument. And you understand how much that instrument is precious for you.
I think Azita, Hadeel and every other blogger are those musicians and they play string of our hearts with their words. Now those who are expert, will always leave a trace in mind.. They have no end..
I know i am not that expert composer. I am just happy that i have my shoutbox to dedicate it. From an Iranian female blogger, who will not forget Azita, and Hadeel and those i love their sincere words here, those who are buttling for a better world, those who leave a trace. It’s something from Iran, for a female Saudi blogger that i would not know her, if she didnt have a shoutbox too.
Just a Dedication to Hadeel..
