56 years ago yesterday the people of Tibet bravely rose against the Communist Chinese Regimen. Every year on this anniversary we remember and honor the lives lost in their struggle for independence and support their ongoing fight for freedom. The actions of the Tibetan people remind us how fortunate we are to enjoy our liberties and inspire us to continue to fight for them.
