Great article, go read it.
The British newspaper Times named an Iranian woman killed in post-election riots in Iran as its "person of the year."
The Times explained that 26-year-old Neda Agha-Soltan became a "symbol of opposition to tyranny" when a 40-second clip documenting her tragic death at the hand of Iranian authorities was seen by millions around the world.[...]
"Ms. Soltan, 26, joined the protest because she was outraged at the way that the regime stole the presidential election," the newspaper said on its front page.
It still hurts just as much to see that photo and recall that day. Unbelievably painful.
