An Iranian Saint: Elham Asghari

As a swimmer myself, I am deeply touched by the story of Elham Asghari:

By way of the Internet, I would like to share my thoughts with Elham:

Your courage and willingness in the face of insurmountable odds clearly demonstrates that you are on the fast track to enlightenment. Your love and service to those who would choose to oppress you is illustrated by your choice of birth in this lifetime. Congratulations on your accomplishment of incalculable merit in a single incarnation!

From this humble swimmer, heartfelt congratulations to Elham on setting a 20 kilometer world record! You are the personification of the human spirit in its finest form.
