The government’s desperation still can’t erase the memory of what happened that day.


  1. At my tutoring center, I teach one Chinese student who came to America in December of 2010. He’s a good kid, still struggling with English… and he has no idea what Tiananmen Square was/is all about. Never heard of that incident. At the same time, he’s fully aware of how sanitized the Chinese news is: according to him, the news tends to be about how great things are in China — quite the opposite of the “if it bleeds, it leads” mentality. What a strange bubble to live in: knowing that there are things unknown, which should be known.
