It pains me to post this, because the act would hurt people that i love the most, both alive and underground, because they believe in the Communist party that "rescued China from the Evil clutches of Foreign Powers". "You would not be alive if not for the Communists!" Mom said to me in our latest argument over the Country's politics.
it's quite strange, maybe beyond the western countryman's ability to recognize, how "Ungrateful" Chinese people feel towards their country in asking for Democracy. it brings to mind Oliver Twist, asking for more soup... Though i can see the problems and anger that lies just beneath the Economy boom, and the moral decline that follows so much ban on things that ARE worth talking about. It pains me because i want to be proud of my country always, like when i was watching the Olympics, but find it impossible at times, when so much of the truth is shrouded in darkness.
So i want to remember the "June Fourth Inciddent", because i saw most of these pictures only today, 20 years later. Knowing that the act would probably ban my blog in China soon, but knowing that nothing can stay banned forever.
