Today is June 4 – Tiananmen Square Day.
It is a day to honor the love of freedom, the desire for the rule of law, the insistence on fairness, and the true patriotism of the students and others who demonstrated in Tianenmen Square in Beijing, and in other cities, throughout May and early June of 1989.
It is a day to honor the bravery and patriotism of Tank Man.
They were not a threat to China. But China’s self-appointed rulers felt the student’s ideas to be a threat to their rule. So the self-appointed rulers crushed the demonstrations, and sometimes literally crushed demonstrators, with ostentatious cruelty.
The student’s chose black as the color to symbolize agreement with their goals.
To honor them and their goals, wear something black today.
