Tank Man|Courage

one heart
opposes
death and steel.

one heart
beating strongly,
beating with purpose.

i salute your courage,
brave heart…
may your deed
inflame
the numb,
the paralyzed.

_____________________________________________________________________
Tank Man, or the Unknown Rebel, is the nickname of an anonymous man who stood in front of a column of Chinese Type 59 tanks the morning after the Chinese military forcibly removed protesters from in and around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square on June 5, 1989. The man achieved widespread international recognition due to the videotape and photographs taken of the incident.”
