On June 4th, 1989 the morning after the Chinese military had suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by force, a man stood in front of a column of tanks. He then became known as "Tank Man" and named the man one of the century's top 20 revolutionaries. Originally, troops stormed through Beijing and into the square to crush the student-led political uprising that had disrupted the capital for weeks. This struck me as the most important event because the man was brave enough to put himself in danger all for peace. He tried to negotiate with the driver and basically risk his life. It is an inspiration to myself and other people because we should always stick up for the right thing even if it may be hard to do so.
Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a disease caused by one of five different Ebola viruses. Four of the strains can cause severe illness in humans and animals. The fifth, which is Reston virus, has only cause illness in animals. Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, died Wednesday morning. Duncan who is originally from Liberia came to the United States to visit family and friends. Duncan was visiting his son and his son's mother in Dallas, according to Wilfred
Smallwood, Duncan's half-brother. The first source I looked at which was CNN described Duncan's history before, after, and during his illness. It described through question and answers and more about his life. With the second source, which was Aljazeera, they described not only what happened with Duncan, but also what the government is going to do now. It described the precautions places are going to have as well, like airports.
