25 APRIL 1974

The Carnation Revolution (Portuguese: Revolução dos Cravos), also referred to as the 25 de Abril, was a left-leaning military coup started on April 25, 1974, in Lisbon, Portugal, that effectively changed the Portuguese regime from an authoritarian dictatorship to a democracy after two years of a transitional period.

It was a great day and I was very young. We had hope! True hope and this hope filled our hearts with happiness. Yesterday I was happy too! You know why! Kiss
