Free to Follow Your Beat

Today some of the City Daily Photo Blogs raise awareness about the protest in Iran. I have chosen to celebrate the freedom women have here in the U.S. by showing Masumi Jones on drums, being all she can be as a person, a jazz drummer and a woman. Warning to Iran: women are not property and one day they will rise up to take their freedom.

  1. I applaud this young woman following the beat of a different drum. I applaud the people of Iran rising up in support of their own self-determination rather than having their direction imposed from above or from outside.

    I am so glad you posted on this special Theme Day. We want our blogger back. The world is watching.
