From this post:

Where was I when the People's Liberation Army opened fire on the students and civilians at Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989?

At the exact time it happened, I was probably in bed, sleeping. There's a 16 hour time difference.

I was old enough to know what was going on, but still too young to really understand the weight of the events. Half the students at my school were Chinese, so we all wore white shirts, black pants and black arm bands in the days and weeks after the incident. Part of it was the cool and belonging factor, but I was also cognizant that this wasn't just any fad because my parents jumped on board right away and helped me get an arm band.
