This is the most heartbreaking book I can recall reading To say it is difficult to read is an understatement as is saying it is a compelling read It is a book once you begin to read you will be unable to put down and unable to forget That it is a true story is horrifying That there are at least 15 prisoners at risk of stoning today Amnesty International is incomprehensible Those 15 are in Iran Iran is not the only country to have stoning happenIn reading this story and imagining how Soraya must have felt it is not difficult to see why she was silent She must have felt trapped because she had no way to defend herself Whether or not the charges were justified or false the cards were stacked against her I cannot imagine how she came to terms with her sentence I cannot fathom what must have gone through her mind when she watched her father her sons pick up stones to throw at herThe person I think I am most amazed at is Soraya s aunt The only person to try to come to her aid In thinking about that country and its treatment of women Soraya s aunt stands out as a hero She spoke out in Soraya s defense She failed to stay uiet after the execution and it is from her that we hear Soraya s story What an amazing amount of courage love and strength that took I would like to think I could be so strong But in all honesty I am not certain I do not think any of us who lived our entire lives free could say with absolute certainty that they could do what Soraya s aunt did The back cover of the book states It is a story that must be told To that I add it is a story that must be read You cannot change anything in ignorance Knowledge is power Is it to say that by reading the book Iran will suddenly change its sentencing No We all know that is not realistic But perhaps by becoming knowledgeable and passing that knowledge on we can eventually change things for the better According to the author between 1979 to 1983 the Iranian government acknowledged that between 500 to 600 women were put to death by stoning Today there are 15 at risk of stoning That is a huge difference Knowledge is power I cannot imagine the strength of the Iranian people who have fought to change things for the better in their country I am in awe of them as I am of those in countries around the world who fight against injustice those who refuse to be silent in the face of deathThe Stoning of Soraya M is a story that must be read It is a story you will not forget
