“How do they rise up?”
The People’s Revolution in the wonderful Discworld books took place on the Glorious 25th of May, in which the people of Ankh-Morpork formed the People’s Republic of Treacle Mine Road and Sam Vimes helped save the Republic. Today, some fans wear the lilac ostensibly in remembrance of those who lost their lives, but really as a remembrance of Sir Terry Pratchett.
Terry Pratchett was one of the best and bravest of us. He wrote some of the best books around, cared deeply about social justice and equality, fought valiantly for the right of individuals to die with dignity, and wore a great hat. Let us use this OT to celebrate both him and the world and characters he created.
