By popular demand: The singing revolution

The singing revolution of the Estonian people

This came up last July on the DP for the first time. With all the disappointments of the primaries and the infighting sometimes there were brilliant ideas around. May it give us hope for the uncoming days!

New math!

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!

I bought two copies for friends for Christmas, and I highly recommend it! I just hope we can remain so calm and resolved during events to come in this country.

Wow, thanks

I enjoyed that. I am a terrible singer but if it would save our nation I'd be all for it. I wonder what song we would sing? Maybe we should have a contest a beautiful song that when we are down will lift our spirits. That no matter what was happening to us singing our song would give us comfort. No matter how hungry singing our song would give us strength. Hmmm, wish I knew what the words were to that song. It must be really good. I do believe in the power of song why else do churches and radios fill the air waves with song.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

Try this one... ; )

No matter how dim hope may seem,

the human spirit keeps alive the wish for freedom. this video is a beautiful example of peaceful people triumphing over totalitarian repression, decades of propaganda, tanks and armies.
I bought copies to give to family members and a licensed copy to show to people I'm introducing to freedom concepts. One idea I'm working on is to develop local book/film groups as a focus for discussions.
MPI, the creators of this and other films is doing really quality freedom films and deserves support so they can continue their good work.
They also license their films for commercial public showing, if anyone has a sizeable market and commercial venue.

Thank you

for the information.

the rEVOLution could use such simplicity as well ~

Another singular idea, a brave man...who most likely lived a short ...but incredibly purposeful life by being the subject of one of the most iconic photos ever.

Picture power: Tiananmen stand-off
Charlie Cole's winning photo

The World Press Photo foundation celebrates the 50th anniversary of its annual photographic competition this year.

No one knows for sure what happened to the "man with the shopping bag" after he was hauled away by China's secret police, but the event provoked an international outcry.

...Shortly afterwards, a column of about 25 tanks began to roll down the same lane. Stuart and I were shooting shoulder to shoulder as they made their way down the avenue. Then suddenly from the roadside, we saw a young man, with a jacket in one hand and a shopping bag in the other, step into the path of the tanks in an attempt to halt them.

To my amazement, the lead tank stopped, then tried to move around him but the young man cut it off again. Finally the PSB grabbed him and ran away with him. Stuart and I looked at each other in somewhat disbelief at what we had just seen and photographed.

I think his action captured people's hearts everywhere, and when the moment came his character defined the moment rather than the moment defining him. He made the image, I just took the picture. I felt honoured to be there.
