The spring of 1989 was warm and humid. For the first time in history, people from all over the country had come to Beijing to take a stand against the regime. They were in open revolt: one out of ten had left their homes, their safe havens, in search for a brighter future, one out of ten had joined the protest to make a change, one out of ten fought for a better, a democratic China.
This is a story of the brave, a tribute to the ten percent who joined the battle that gave us the right to be free. I was there those days, and so was my sister, Mei.
