I Who Did Not Die

iwhodidnotdie  An inspiring book based on two soldiers of the Iran Iraq War written by Meredith May.
Najah the Iraqi soldier left for dead was saved by Zahed a young Iranian medic soldier on the battle field. Both imprisoned as POW, both were claimed dead by their families, both held on to their dreams to a point of manifestation!
One wonders after all the pain, fear, tears, lost and broken spirit how these two soldiers miraculously stayed alive and freed their way out of hell and into the hands of Canada’s haven.

25 years later, here in this beautiful city of Vancouver, the two soldiers find themselves sitting across from each other in the lobby of a non profit organization VAST (Vancouver Association of Survivors of  Torture).  Now the recollection of the past have been written….the untold story is now unfolded….in fact this story will give you renewed hope in humanity. An example of the power of positive change respectfully.

Photos of the day the book signing took place at Chapters located Broadway and Granville. Holding hands in a victorious gesture are Najah and Zahed-

On this day the family and friends gathered to support them. it was indeed a memorable and proud day:)
