Today is the 28th anniversary of the late Shah of Iran's passing in Egypt. I'd like to remember His Majesty, the Shah of Iran, here and honor his memory and service to the country he loved and cared for. It's also with pride to appreciate Pahlavis' efforts to modernize the Iranian society, pull the country together and turn it into a decent country. The history, I am certain, will judge this great family fairly and that's the best thing that can ever happen to the statesmen.

Here is a great picture showing Shahbanoo Farah Pahlavi by her beloved husband's grave in Cairo, Egypt.

امروز سالگرد درگذشت شاهنشاه ایران در سال 59 شمسی در قاهره، مصر، هست و من بعنوان یک ایرانی وطندوست بدینوسیله دلم میخواهد با افتخار و صدای بلند از زحمات شاه فقید قدردانی کنم. من مطمئن هستم که تاریخ از شاهان پهلوی قدردانی خواهد کرد و زحمات رضا شاه بزرگ و شاهنشاه فقید ایران به فراموشی سپرده نخواهد شد بلکه روز بروز جلوه درخشانی در عرصه تاریخ مملکت ایران پیدا خواهند کرد

The Shah was a good man and a good friend of the U.S. It shames me that my country betrayed him in the manner it did. It saddens me that the Iranian people now have to live under the government that they do.

The Shah and his efforts for development of Iran have always stuck in our minds.
God bless his soul

Sometimes you don't realize or fully appreciate until someone is gone, what an important, significant person they really were.
In the Shah's case, the loss affected the world.

I'd say RIP, but that won't happen until this regime is destroyed.
