China, As We Know It Now, Came To Be This Day, 68-Years Ago — October 1, 1949.
Pretty amazing story. Obviously an ancient country, with long, distinguished and much storied history. “Communist China”, as many of us know it (at least in our hearts), as you can see is not that old. Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) got its Independence a year earlier.
What they have achieved, especially in the last 20-years, is sobering to contemplate.
Kind of neat that Modern China and Disney World share a birthday.
