Tiananmen Square

Twenty years ago. Hard to believe, ain't it?

Sadly, "the whole world is watching" only works when the whole world is actually watching. The real story has been dropped in the Memory Hole of history. We only know it by its absence; the unimaginable scene of horror that must have taken place when they cleared the reporters out, the cameras weren't rolling, and the tanks were.

Balls of steel, this guy. A true hero.
