June 4, 1989

We live in a country in which we can view, without censorship or denial, a picture of this moment:

And we can honor those who sparked it, who dared to defy power in the name of freedom, near a square in Beijing twenty years ago. Let these young, hopeful, and incredibly brave (some would say reckless) kids remind us--a month before we celebrate 233 years of freedom--to defend this freedom, keep its burning torch lit, and pass it to the next generation.
