Tank Man (Uncropped)

This is an original photo of Tank Man at Tiananmen Square, taken on June 5, 1989, uncropped.

Tank_Man_uncroppedWhile the uncropped version was published a while ago, this is the first time we have seen it. It is awesome to think that this one unarmed man was able to stop such a long column of tanks bearing down on him.

If one unarmed man can stop a column of tanks for a moment, could it be possible that a large group of people could stop a legion of tanks forever, if they will but stand, and stand together?
