History repeats. Looking at ours, that's a tragedy. But it doesn't have to. It doesn't have to if we, as individuals, don't let it.A Unique Elegy is about a man who stopped history in its tracks. Across the sands of time, the prince stood up to the tyrant of his time. He paid, and got the greatest return imaginable.It was the most atrocious crime imaginable. An army of tens of thousands of troops committing war crimes of the highest order, including targeting children, attacking innocent women, and plundering the property of women and young girls by force. Outnumbered more than one hundred times, a massacre was instigated because the arrogant tyrant, Yazid, demanded allegiance - or else.The crime itself was horrible enough - but considering the victim of this crime was the most honorable, noble, and dignified man and his family, magnified how reprehensible an act it was.Yet there was a principle behind his story, so crystal clear. He summed it up himself when he said, "Death with dignity is better than life with humiliation". Imam Hussayn (upon him be peace) spoke this timeless gem.Experience the epic poem relating the story, a timeless story of one man's decisions and actions and those who supported steadfast. Witness them Standing Up Right.
