“Grandpa’s eyes got wet again. I hugged her and wiped the tears from his lip. Grandpa said: ‘One day Eduardo came to Iran and asked Imam Reza (AS) that his father be kinder to him and respect his religion. His father also became kinder, but his strength was not enough to reach the others. They did not want all this wealth to go to a Muslim, Eduardo,” he said. They were martyred.’ My heart burnt so much for Eduardo…”
