May all these Yazids, literal and metaphorical, be upended on this and every Ashura, so that we can realize the daily relevance of the teachings of a beautiful and meaningful Islam.   May we do more than merely shed tears. May we rise, majestically, to embody the spirit of revolution, in countering tyranny and oppression. - Omid Safi
