The Cold War that we remember is over. The USSR is the answer to a trivia question.  We call them Russia now.

Nevertheless, an amazing thing happened in Hungary this week in 1956. It started with simple protests and then students, workers, and even some soldiers demanded more freedom.

The Soviet tanks eventually crushed the rebellion and the dream was not realized until 1989.

However, we can never forget what the brave citizens of Hungary did this week in 1956. They stood up to communism and we can not forget their bravery.
