Happy Iranian New Year
March 20, 2013 :: Comment
First day of spring marks the beginning of the Iranian new year (Norouz). As a proud American, I still celebrate my Iranian heritage and hope SORA will do some of that.
Iran is a rich culture with great people. To the surprise of many, Iranian population as a whole is very pro-American. I hope more Americans can visit Iran and feel first hand the genuine love of the Iranian people.
Few weeks, maybe even a couple of months before the spring starts, Iranian families clean their houses real well. They wear all new clothing on the first day of spring, and embrace a new beginning. They put all the negative thoughts and feelings behind them, and welcome a fresh start.
May peace be upon us. May our love for each other grow.
