Although Beijing is a city where I would call second home today, back in 1989 it was rather an unfamiliar place to me. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the June 4th Massacre in Beijing. While some still debate over what did or did not happen 20 years ago in Tianamen square, I am sure it did change the lives of many. I remember when i first visited Tianamen square about 10 years ago for the first time, the local tour guide asked me whether I carried any banner or whether I planned to protest. He said he wanted to keep a distance from me if I did plan to protest so he didn’t get caught in between. I didn’t know whether he was joking or being serious.
