Corona and "Corona Daily Notes"

Heavenly Commander

Hero and anti-hero

History has always been involved in the dualities of good and evil, benefaction and evil, good and bad, light and darkness, obscenity and beauty, love and hate, and historians have written the pages of history under both positive and negative effects of these forces.

Ten key notes on Arbaeen travelogues

In memory of a pilot who used to tell his memories

When I heard news, I became worried a lot as if a bullet was shot to my chest and come out easily of my body from another side. Short and painful: "Brigadier general pilot Akbar Tavangarian also flies into the sky". The fear of encountering the last farewell at the funeral unconsciously reminded me of our first visit.

The ceremony held to honor Ashura, through ritual and non-religious rituals over the centuries, had always been the focus of Shiites and followers of Imam Hossein and his martyred companions in other religions. The followers of Sayyid al-Shohada (AS) have thus sought to preserve and develop the teachings, concepts, and religious and ethical values. This has had a profound connection with peoples religion living and their identification.

The importance of auditory and visual memory in oral history

For this reason, everyone, at first, tries to visualize mentally observations of past events and then expresses memories.
