April 2nd 2014 Amir’s father suffers a stroke and is unable to walk. This message further motivates the family to pressure whoever they can to expedite their son’s release. The message has become distilled. It has been long enough; Free Amir Now.

Hopefully this added humanitarian impetus will help speed up Amir’s release. 

I lost my father suddenly, and I can’t tell you the pain I feel about it sometimes. I’ll see something silly that I’ll just want to share with him, like when Ellsbury did a clean steal of home against the Yankees, and my chest will suddenly ache.

I pray that they will give him that chance to talk to his father again. No son needs to live with that pain if it can be avoided, and it can. It just takes common sense.
