To look for a moment, to think for a moment, to make justice for a moment and maybe for a moment of freedom, sometimes, the hardest thing to do is this; to do something just for a moment. We sometimes do things just by habit and hide ourselves behind excuses that we forget about the warmth that ”wanting”, ”being able of” and ”understanding” can bring us.

Where do I get to this idea of ”a moment”, I do not know. But I know that I was thinking about Koocheh Mahtabi and I thought that starting something or being in front of each new beginning, takes ”a moment”; just like falling in love. Why did I entered the eventful concept of love here, I do not know… but I know that falling in love – no matter what our definition of love can be – is more comprehensible than concepts such as freedom, justice and so on. Perhaps we can even say that achieving these kind of social needs depends on something as simple as love.

To quote the poet Shamloo:

”to be born human embodied a task:

to be able to love and be loved,

to be able to hear,

to see and to say,

to be sad and happy,

to laugh and to cry from the bottom of the heart,

to be humble even at the highest point of glorious proud,

to be able to bear the trust,

and stand sadness of loneliness,

loneliness,

loneliness,

naked loneliness,

being human,

is the challenge of the task.”

Now you know what is going on in my mind and why it is hurting so much. Because for a moment, being human, makes all the other ”for a moment”s possible. Is it really so difficult, for a moment being human, for a moment being a free media, for a moment being committed to human reality? I think that it actually is very difficult; that is why it is so rare to see the manifestation of human nature, I mean, ”for a moment being human”.
