Part One: Not even looking at the facts and only looking at pictures, Tienanmen Square at the time was not the place you wanted to be at. This was simply a non-violent protest by unarmed civilians. That's all it ever was going to be until troops with assault rifles and tanks inflicted casualties on the protesters trying to block the military's advance towards Tienanmen Square in the heart of Beijing. There were students prior to the massacre that had been protecting and occupying the Square for weeks. It's crazy to see these pictures and read these stories and know that there is this type of cruel malice out in our world. The most important thing I will take away from this is the fact that these innocent but motivated protestors stood in front of tanks and men with weapons, stood their ground, and even died to defend what they believed was right.
