Remember, celebrating Norooz and being happy doesn’t mean you don’t care about what’s happened in Iran the past few years. Neda (and others who lost their lives while fighting for freedom) would want you to celebrate being Iranian and observe this very special (and very Persian) event. What you can do however, to remember the Nedas of Iran, is to add an extra candle to your haft-seen table in remembrance.
