There comes a time that people get tired.

There comes a time people get tired of being trampled over by the iron feet of oppression. There comes a time, as it were, that people get tired of being pushed out of the glittering sunlight of life’s July, and left standing in the piercing chill of an Alpine November. These people became tired, and they decided to protest against that oppression.
