The darkest day in Thailand’s recent history

Not many people outside Thailand know the events that took place on the 6th of October 1976, but for Thai’s, it is a time to make Merit and pray that things like that never happen again. If you aren’t familiar with the events that took place on the 6th, follow the wiki article below and read up on it. I had never heard of the incident before and it occurred at a time when I was still at school. It sometimes amazes me how much our world history is filtered by our society leaders, especially when it doesn’t fit in with their narrative of a worldview.
