"Uphold me with thy free spirit"

The struggle for democratic freedoms in China, Eastern Europe, and the USSR has been producing some powerful images, like the one on the cover of this week's Sentinel.

Who can forget the photograph of a lone, slight, shirt-sleeved man in Tiananmen Square, confronting a line of lumbering, cannon-ready tanks of the Red Chinese Army? His integrity, his courage, his dignity as a man, were all that stood between him and those armored engines of destruction.
