Bowing in front of the Brave

Tonight I am bowing to those people who 25 years ago in China – and not only on the Tiananmen Square in Beijing – peacefully demonstrated against suppression and corruption and for freedom and democracy and became victim of a ruthless bunch of criminal bastards in power.
And I am bowing to those who would not give up.

Very probably I'd be not such brave.

The peace of the night.


  1. It is sad that these tragedies repeat. The human race seems not to be able to get past the oppressive, violent cycle...

  2. I was waiting for this. Merci! Bowing with you....

  3. Words fail me in the face of the outrage, and in the face of the distasteful fact that the pragmatists may be right, whatever the outrage, that the only way to influence is through engagement until entwining interdependence gives pause for thought and leverage for change, but... (words have failed me).
