After researching the events of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, there were several events that were important to remember. The biggest thing that struck me was that just a few college students got together and protested. The protest eventually grew to thousands of students. I think this is something important to remember because the students were standing up to something they wanted and believed in and were trying to make a difference. Another thing that stood out to me was the amount of deaths that were followed by the protesting.
|Students protesting for what they believe in|
I think this image is important because it shows the vast amount of students that came together. The students were fighting for that they wanted and what they thought was right. If people come together they can try to change something. It shows that even being young adults, the students can have opinions and believe in certain things.
|Man being pepper sprayed for fighting for what he believes in|
Even though this image only shows one person protesting, I still believe that it is a strong and important image. The man is is fighting for what he wants and will not stop or back down. The police are pepper spraying him right in the face and he is still fighting. It goes to show how strongly these people feel about the subject.
I read two articles both about Ebola. A spanish nurse was taking care of a man who had traveled to Africa and had gotten Ebola. The nurse eventually got Ebola and did not know how she could have gotten it. In the CNN article, it talks about how she could have gotten Ebola by taking off her suit and having her glove touching her face. The article also talks about the families dog and how people have become concerned about it and also protesting about putting the dog down. In the second article by the NY Times, they talk about how the woman and husband were going to go on vacation after the patient that the woman was taking care of died. They stated that they did not attend the vacation and instead stayed at her mothers house. Both articles talked about how the woman was taking care of a sick man with Ebola but later on in the articles, they both went separates ways in what they talked about. I think both articles were important and gave good information.
