No Summer at All… June 4,1989

Pushy, desperate governments reliant on control, control, control are bound to treat their citizens as chess pieces. This is also a characteristic of the fictional government in the Days of the Guardian, the Economic Crisis Containment Office  (E.C.C.O.)  The need for rescue becomes dire. Don’t forget- China has not changed much since this incident. They still demand control, control, control. What is next?

(Words and Music by Joan Baez)

In the month of May, in the glory of the day
Came the descendants of a hundred flowers
And their fight it did begin with the aging Mandarin
And they fought with an extraordinary power
Everyone was smiling, their hearts were one
In Tiananmen Square

But it seems that the Spring this year in Beijing
Came just before the Fall
There was no summer at all
In Tiananmen Square
China… China

There’s peace in the emerald fields, there’s mist upon the lakes
But something is afoot in the People’s Hall
The spirit of Chu Ping is alive in young Chai Ling
And the Emperor has his back against the wall
Black sun rising over Tiananmen Square
Over Tiananmen Square

But it seems that the Spring this year in Beijing
Came just before the Fall
There was no summer at all
In Tiananmen Square
China… China

In the month of June, in the darkness of the moon
Went the descendants of a hundred flowers
And time may never tell how many of them fell
Like the petals of a rose in some satanic shower
Everyone was weeping in all of China
And Tiananmen Square

But it seems that the Spring this year in Beijing
Came just before the Fall
There was no summer at all
In Tiananmen Square
China… China

And even the moon on the fourth day of June
Hid her face and did not see
Black sun rising over Tiananmen Square

And Wang Wei Lin, you remember him
All alone he stood before the tanks
A shadow of forgotten ancestors in Tiananmen Square

And my blue-eyed son, you had no one
You could call a hero of your age
You have the rainbow warriors of Tiananmen Square, singing
China Shall Be Free
China Shall Be Free
China Shall Be Free

Did You Know?
Since China began enforcing the One-Child Policy in 1980, over 37 million girls have disappeared in the world’s largest gendercide and over 336 million forced and coerced abortions have occurred under the policy’s reign. But there is hope! Check out the All Girls Allowed movement and find out how you can join what God is doing to bring an end to these injustices!

 

Chai Ling, one of the student movement’s leaders (as mentioned in the song above) began the charity organization, All Girls Allowed. Join me in the fight! Rescue begins with one.

Chai Ling’s book, A Heart for Freedom, can be found at Amazon.
