Oh anon, how does one explain the glorious May revolution to someone who wasn’t there…
In some distant corner of the universe there is a world that’s flat as a disk and carried on the backs four elephants that are standing on the back of the Giant Star Turtle A’Tuin.
On this strange world there is a city, the infamous Ankh-Morpork. That city is ruled by Patricians. Patrician used to be the polite way to say dictator. Once upon a time the patrician was a cruel and sick man and the people could take no more so on the night of the 25th they rebelled against his rule, barricaded the streets and fought their way through the night to a bitter and not better at all tomorrow but that uprising was the start and soon the world did become a better place.

and a Hard Boiled Egg.
You wear the lilac if you were there.
(tl;dr Read Night Watch by Terry Pratchett anon, it will make your heart ache but it will be a beautiful kind of ache. Sorry about the spam, but today we remember.)
