Courage is contagious! When a brave man takes a stand,the spines of others are often stiffened! ~Billy Graham In image: "Tank Man" during Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 in China. He later featured in "Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century" n 1998. #Courage #Tankman #TiananmenSquare
Known as Tank Man, this man stood in front of these four tanks, blocking their path after the Chinese Military forcibly removed protestors from Tiananmen Square on June 5, 1989. His identity has never been discovered, but he is known to be a college student and is referred to in China as Wang Weilin. This photo achieved world wide recognition and epitomized the feelings of the protests.

June 4, 1989 - After a month and a half, the Tiananmen Square protests are violently ended in Beijing by the People's Liberation Army, with at least 241 dead. The students and protesters called for government accountability, freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and the restoration of workers' control over industry. The Chinese government was widely condemned internationally for the use of force against the protesters. #history #China #Tiananmen

14. The uncropped wide-angle aerial view of Tank Man, Tiananmen Square. From this distance, you see past the four tanks in the original iconic photo, to a chillingly expansive mass of tanks and soldiers. The scale of the picture changes the story somewhat, don’t you think?
IF THIS INSPIRES YOU THEN PLEASE REPIN! To-morrow Weds June 4th is the 25th Anniversary of the terrible events at Tianenmen Square when the Chinese 'Government' chose mass murder over compromise & murdered thousands of it's own peacefully demonstrating citizens in cold blood. This is the full uncropped version of Jeff Widener's famous photo of 'Tank Man', taken from his hotel balcony in Peking (Beijing), June 6th 1989. If anything it demonstrates even more this unbelievable spontaneous act of courage this ordinary working man decided to make that day, in the knowledge that at any moment he might be crushed to death under tank tracks or just simply shot for his refusal to be cowed by state terror. Remember that this was two days AFTER the slaughter at Tianenmen Square so he did this knowing that in all likelihood it was an act of suicidal courage on his part, yet he chose to do it anyway. One man that day had simply had enough. He was later hustled away by other unknowns. To this day his identity remains a mystery. Yet his singularly unique act of defiance DUD help change the world, not in China, but in Eastern Europe where this picture (& film footage of the same incident) emboldened & inspired many there later the same year. He helped bring down the Berlin Wall in November 1989. What a legacy.

Elliott Erwitt dedicated the bulk of his photographic work to dogs. He loves them: dogs on the street, dog portraits, dogs larger than children, dog piles and most famously, jumping dogs. Of his 21 books, four are devoted to his dog photography — books such as To the Dogs and Son of Beach where he compared bulldogs and poodles with their jowly or primped-up owners. (via Iconic Photos)

On the 70th Anniversary of the Execution of Sophie Scholl, 22 February 1943 - Sophie Scholl was a German woman executed by the Nazis for distributing anti-Nazi pamphlets. Prison officials, in later describing the scene, emphasized the courage with which she walked to her execution. Her last words were: "How can we expect righteousness to prevail when there is hardly anyone willing to offer themselves up individually for a righteous cause? Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go." #SophieScholl

As a child reading the diary of Anne Frank helped me to understand the part of my family history that was too painful for my father to speak of to his young daughter. I am still fascinated by this book and loved sharing it with my own children. IKW
Anne Frank - I love her and the fact that at only 13 years old, 70+ years ago, she still inspires people to be brave.
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
According to one publisher, The Diary of Anne Frank was scarcely worth reading: "The girl doesn't, it seems to me, have a special perception or feeling which would lift that book above the 'curiosity' level." 15 publishers rejected The Diary of Anne Frank.

She worked closely with Richard Avedon, whose photograph of her in a floor-length black evening gown with circus elephants—"Dovima with the Elephants" - taken at the Cirque d'hiver, Paris, in August 1955, has become an icon.
