Standing Tall


20131106-105336.jpg

In 1989, China saw a mass protest of students in Tiananmen Square, demonsatrating against the harsh Communist regime and calling for democracy and reform. The end of that was the massacre of the people in the Square by government. This picture is of the man who stood alone before a column of tanks. Since then, it has come to represent the courage of people who face injustice bravely. It gives hope that there will always be those who will take a stand for what is right.
