“As global citizens, we are challenged in our efforts to create solutions on a global scale by the lack of basic freedom and human rights that the majority of humanity must endure,” Hashemi says.
BRITISH COLUMBIA, Canada (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
Butterfly is a spirited girl who lives with her loving family during a tyrannical time in Farawayland, when oppressive and often cruel leadership threatens to crush its people’s spirits. Too young to fully comprehend the political situation of her homeland, Butterfly dreams of traveling to Otherland to experience a vibrant culture she dreams about. Her parents grant her wish, setting in motion a journey none of them could have imagined.
Based on true events, “Who Knows Where Butterflies Die: Based on True Stories” (published by iUniverse) by author Pasha Parvaneh Hashemi is a profound allegory showcasing the human spirit’s self-determination and desire for freedom, along with the lengths to which people will go to acquire their right to love, family, comfort and safety.
“As global citizens, we are challenged in our efforts to create solutions on a global scale by the lack of basic freedom and human rights that the majority of humanity must endure,” Hashemi says. “Where rule by force exists, the will of the majority is too often silenced or oppressed in favor of the selfish interests of a ruthless minority. We’ve given so much to our world; in return, we’ve destroyed its peace and security. We’ve made a world for ourselves that we’re afraid to live in.”
