On June 11th 1963, a photographer was able to capture an image of a Buddhist monk during Protest in South Vietnam. This image depicted the dignified, yet horrific, suicide of Buddhist monk, Thich Quang Duc. Quang Duc lit himself on fire as a protest toward the Diem Regime, which was prosecuting and murdering Buddhists, in efforts to denounce Buddhism from Vietnam altogether. The image circulated around the world and generated great emotion, leading to international pressure on the Diem Regime. Quang Duc's protest led to other monks taking action by immolating themselves, further putting pressure on the Regime and eventually leading to Diem's assassination months later. Though gruesome, this protest is an example of standing up for ones beliefs. Quang Duc did not fall to the feet of the Diem regime; giving up everything he was as a person. Quang Duc knew what he stood for and made it known to the world, inevitably leading to change for the greater good. If you don't stand for something, you will fall for everything.
