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!
Salud!🍻💚🍻❤

Como me dueles Mexico

The increasing level of corruption, injustice and violence that Mexico has reached seems to not have an end. It’s so frustrating and sad to see such a wonderful country be under the control of such ignorant, stupid and corrupt politicians who do not care about the people of their country. I was not born in Mexico but the blood of my mother, grandparents and grate grandparents runs thick through my body and out of my two halves it’s the side that defines me. I want a better Mexico for my people, for the women and men who represent my culture and my family, for my grandma who is still there and alive, for my 13 aunts and uncles who are still there, and my 92 cousins and their kids as they deserve a better future.
This world needs to stop! Why must we continue to torture each other?
We must stop destroying each other the way we do. For we are all human not one better then the other. Humans who will all turn into dust when we finally go. Why do some of us act like the gold we own is what we are made of? Like we are untouchable and indistructable?
