When I first wrote about Neda on Sunday, it was already clear that she would be made into a symbol. What wasn't clear then, but is now, is that she would also be identified, and humanized.
On Saturday, "Neda", a young Iranian woman watching the protests in Tehran, was allegedly shot by a Basij, dying in her father's arms. It was captured on video. Some say she may be the new face of the opposition movement.
