I was born in a free country. To read and hear the stories of some of the people , who went through that time. It soul chilling.
Portugal had been under a Fascist dictatorship for more than 60 years. The coup is known as a bloodless coup.
The Military led interim government . Returned democracy to Portugal.
Ending the unpopular Colonial wars.
Today Portugal is a true Democracy. It's people free to choose their own political beliefs and party. To go and come as they please.
My thoughts today, are with the countless millions of people all over the world , that still live without Freedom -or human rights. May they one day know what freedom is.
Also to the great men and woman who fight and still fight for democracy and Freedom.
Freedom is the core of democracy. Without Freedom we are nothing.
In June of the same year 1974.. Mr. M and me built our first home in Portugal. I cannot believe that 40 years have passed already.
If you have the time :- The 25th of April revolution - is very interesting reading.
Wishing you all a very Happy Weekend.
