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
The Tiananmen Square Tank Man - This man was braver in that one moment than I will ever be in all my moments combined. And I don't even know who he was. A continuing inspiration for me when my courage flags. #TankMan #DinnerCompanion
The iconic photo of Tank Man, the unknown rebel who stood in front of a column of Chinese tanks in an act of defiance following the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. I remember watching this live on TV, an incredible thing in and of itself, considering the control China held over their media...

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.

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."

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Read excerpts from Anne Frank's diary and watch clips from a dramatization to explore the idea that her character changed while in hiding. http://mass.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/midlit11.ela.splafrank/character-change-the-diary-of-anne-frank/ #literacy #literature #middleschool #annefrank
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.- Reading sure is subjective, isn't it!?
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.
