Twenty-three years-ago today, June 4, the Tianamen Square Massacre took place. On this day, thousands of protestors were murdered by the Communist Party that controled the Chinese government. The people of China wanted democracy, but instead they got a hardline crackdown and now nearly a quarter-century of continued Communist rule. I remember. Do you? And for those of you too young to remember, what do you know of the Tianamen Square Massacre? The events still have a major impact upon the world and our culture and society today. Never forget.
