Time Goes By

I was sitting in the community center sauna talking with a woman my age about Tiananmen Square, which we both have seen.  A young guy listening to us asked us What is Tiananmen Square?  We explained that was where the Chinese demonstrations were, standing in front of the tanks, the paper-mache Statue of Liberty, and all of that.

“Oh yes,” he replied.  “That was before I was born.”  He was right.  Looking it up, the demonstrations were in 1989.
