A True Hero...

I don't think I'll ever forget this image.

It's burned into my memory. This little man standing in front of that line of tanks in Tiannamen Square. Shaking his jacket and his arms and moving to stay in front of the tank.

I wonder what happened to him. If he survived...if he's in prison...

I'll never forget sitting there stunned as I watched that video.

That was bravery. That was defiance. That was courage. That was conviction.

That was the mouse reaching out to strangle the hawk as it tried to swallow him.

That was Don Quixote tilting at an impossible windmill.

That was incredible.

That should be shown in Civics classes in high schools.

Freedom isn't free.
