The impact of one.


On June 5th , 1989 this anonymous man took a stand.  Following the Chinese governments violent crackdown of the Tiananmen Square protests this guy stood in front of a column of tanks as an act of nonviolent protest.

To this day his identity and his fate still remains unknown.

Never doubt the impact one person can have upon their surroundings.  Every act has the potential to inspire one if not millions of minds.  A quote i am fond of goes , " it is better to live one day as a lion , than one hundred years as a sheep."
