Though the Tiananmen Square demonstrations in Beijing, China happened over 25 years ago, the images and memories still hold strong in the hearts of many. What started as a simple student protest quickly turned into a widespread fight for quality of life. At first, it was just some students in a peaceful protest, but over the course of seven weeks, the total of those involved came to over one million.

Hundreds of unarmed victims were killed during the protests by way of Chinese army tanks. The horror these people witnessed while fighting for democracy cannot be explained.
