June 4th

I want to share today's photo to remember those who lost their lives on June 4th, 1989 in Tiananmen Square.
Photo shows the memorial sculpture at the University of HK, the two bigger Chinese characters means "national sorrow".

Like Kris I think it's insane that that was already 17 yrs ago.
Good to know they're remembered.

Wow I don't even know about the Tianamen massacre...thanks lisi for sharing this. I learned a new thing today...and my prayers go to the poor souls who had to give up their lives for the cause they believe.

Heads up to them!

That's a very dynamic statue. It's a great monument to their cause.

I didn't know that the Tienamen massacre was on 4th June (or maybe I was too young to remember it)

The sculture is very impressive and make me feeld very sad

Thank you all for your footprints.

It is natural that the June 4th incident is kind of remote to you but it is an important issue to me, as well as to many Chinese. I'm glad that this year, I have this blog to let more people know about it. I hope to see the day when the Mainland government will give a fair assessment to the tragedy.
