What Moharram is really about - refusing to forget

An extract from a short piece on what Karbala stands for (in my mind) and how the observance of Moharram remains relevant (that is, if we allow it to):

What does a tragedy mean, after all, if we give it a single word - massacre? How do we honour those who are killed even though they do not want bloodshed? They who die must not be reduced to a statistic. They must not be remembered as mere contenders for power. Therefore, the poetry is in the voice of a beloved who must witness a tragedy.
