Ghazal Omid was born in Iran, during the reign of the Shah, into the second of her father's two families, both of whom he abused, neglected, and deserted. As a child she witnessed death and destruction daily and faced near starvation while surviving the armed conflict to escape the danger of the Iranian revolution and Iran-Iraq war. She grew to adulthood under the dictatorial Islamic regime of Khomeini and his mullahs. In reprisal for daring to quietly defy false Islamic rules imposed by authorities and for demanding to be treated as an equal, she was abducted by Sepah Pasdaran, the Islamic Iran special police, a prelude to an orchestrated death sentence for alleged resistance to the regime. Escaping her abductors by jumping from a moving car, she made her way through France and Holland to Canada. Today she resides in Washington, D.C.
