Chicago History Museum curator, Peter Alter attends an Iranian vigil. People held candles, left flowers, sat quietly, and looked at images of those killed and injured during the street protests in Tehran. Unlike demonstrations in the United States during the 1979 Iranian revolution, no one chanted political slogans and the only signs people held related to Neda. I thought one of the most moving parts of the vigil took place when the crowd, in a display of unity, sang a Persian song, "Hamrah Sho Aziz."
