¡VIVA MÉXICO! HEROES ON DISPLAY

Posted by

Although Independence Day was over a week ago, Mexico City remains awash in Green, white and red.  Today I passed by the government offices of Cuahtemoc, one of the 16 boroughs of el DF (Federal District).  Giant banners with quotes from Mexican independence heroes drape the buildings.

The fatherland comes first.

Dying is nothing when you die for the fatherland.

Long live independence!  Long live America!  

Death to bad government!

So many soldiers to guard just one poor woman, but with my blood I will leave a legacy to my children.

When people jump over their barriers there is almost no force strong enough to stop them.

Love is not the only motive for women’s actions.  They are capable of all emotions and desires for glory and freedom of the fatherland are not uncommon feelings at all.
