June 3, 1989

I remember so clearly listening to this on my radio when I was a kid. It was late at night, and I think I was either grounded, or it was too late for me to be up. I was still in school, but we were getting closer to the end.

Anyway, I remember hearing the image above being described over the radio. It was scary and shocking and yes, to a 14-year-old, a little exciting at the same time.

If you're a former student, ask your parents what they remember about Tiananmen Square. It's what happens when one person stands up to forces in power that are bullies.

I need to add June 3, 1989 to the timeline.
