I found that the most important thing to remember and learn from these events was that the government needs to worry and care about the citizens. Citizens hold a stronger power than what communist countries and dictatorships think. If a mob is given the right motivation and circumstances, they can grow to massive proportions and cause devastating effects on the country through uprising and protest. The people of a country have the ability to make or break the economy and the well being of the others in that country.
|This is a picture of the Hong Kong student protests. This picture I believe captures the number of students wanting something better. I believe that through mass numbers by citizens in a government, things can be changed. This picture shows how much citizens care and want a change in the government that they have. It shows the emotion and unity of the citizens as well as how passion can dictate a series of events.|
|This is a picture of a man at Tiananmen Square. I believe that this picture captures the true destructiveness and the toll it took on the people involved in this horrific event. This picture shows how willing the people are to fight for their right for freedom and how they are willing to put their lives on the line for what they believed.|
