"For me, April 24th, (1999), was actually a calm and happy day. I’d just gotten married less than a month earlier. My wife and I were preparing to take wedding pictures. At the time we were in Xidan Shopping Mall. There was a photography studio called Weiwei Bridal Shop, and we went there to make an appointment. Right then, my mom called me. She told me something happened that day, but didn’t go into much detail. She just said she was planning to go to Zhongnanhai the next day. She asked me to go back home early so she could explain the situation to me in detail."
