Part of being a world citizen is the ability to educate yourself and apply that acquired knowledge toward the betterment of the human condition. If our basic needs for liberty and the pursuit of education are systematically hindered, we become stagnant and debase ourselves for selfish gain.
This video tells the story of Soheilia Afnani and her father Nusratullah Subhani, a local Baha’i leader who was
executed March 5th, 1985. The day before he was killed, Mr. Subhani wrote to his wife and
daughter, “I only wish that all of you become inspired and successful in the pathway of truth and
truthfulness. May my life be sacrificed to you all.”

2) Become a part of an initiative focused on the education of all people.
