Yo soy la lumbre que alumbra el camino,
Yo camino los pasos de los que vinieron antes de mí.
Yo cuento sus historias, sus de deseos, y mantengo sus sueños vivos.
Yo represento el sufrimiento, y el dolor.
Estoy hecha de la misma sangre que coreo en sus venas.
La lucha no solo es mía,
Es de mis antepasados.
De mis abuelos.
De mis padres.
Y para aquellos que vendrán después de mí.
I am the flame that illuminates the pathway.
I walk in the footsteps of those that came before me.
I tell their old stories, their desires, and maintain their dreams alive.
I represent the sacrifice, and the pain.
I’m made of the same blood that ran through their veins.
This fight isn’t only my fight.
It’s of my ancestors.
It’s of my grandparents.
It’s of my parents.
… and for those that’ll come after me.
I actually can’t stand today, for the name it has received of “Cinco de drinko”
It makes me want to tell people to STFU.
But whatever, that’s Merica for ya!😂
In the words of my mom…
A little bit of history for you guys…
Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate in Mexican history, The Battle of Puebla took place on this date, 152 years ago.
The Battle of Puebla was a battle fought on May 5, of 1862 between the armies of Mexico and the Second French Empire, resulting in a major victory for the Mexicans who with considered inferior forces managed to defeat one of the most experienced and respected armies of the century.
The battle did not stop at the invasion of Mexico, it only delayed it for a year, when the French came back with 35,000 troops and took over Mexico. However, the French were eventually defeated and unconditionally withdrew from the country in 1867.
The victory on the Battle of Puebla is important as it symbolizes what unity could achieve for Mexico.
Important facts to remember:
-Cinco de Mayo is NOT independence day for Mexico.
-Puebla is a Mexican State.
-Mexico defeated the French in which seemed a beyond unlikely win for Mexico.
-No, the Chupacabras does not deliver gifts in Cinco de Mayo.
-No, Margaritas were not invented on Cinco de Mayo -No, its not a tradition where everyone makes tacos and salsa on Cinco de Mayo
Happy Cindo de Mayo!
