thank you for your auspicious comment-

yet dubious commentary from the young lady going to have
her eyebrows narrowed,truly speaks volumes

Iranian/Persian custom dictates girls and unmarried women do NOT pluck their eyebrows to signify they are virgins and unmarried.
It’s one of the oldest traditions in Iran.

In 2009 this does not mean that stray eyebrow (ah-bru) hairs are not cleaned up before marriage but having a unibrow (to some varying degrees) in courtship signifies virginity.

For this young woman in “narrowing her eyebrows” means
to pluck from her soul for love of country - a remembrance for love and death and she is prepared to die for freedom.

thank you for your auspicious comment-

I just commented on comments others have made about Iran.

I wish them well; I wish them freedom.

I don't wish them nuclear weapons and terrorism.
