CINCO DE MAYO

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is seen as THE day to celebrate Mexican food, culture, and traditions

As time has passed, the historical context of  ‘Cinco de Mayo‘ started to be forgotten.

History of Cinco de Mayo in the US
In 1862, at the time the Battle of Puebla took place, the United States was engaged in its Civil War. The French presence in Mexico was a strategic move:

by gaining a toehold in Mexico, the French could then support the Confederate Army.

The defeat of the French at the Battle of Puebla was not definitive, but it helped to stave off the French while the U.S. Union forces made advances.
Thus Cinco de Mayo can be seen as a turning point in the US Civil War.

Cinco de Mayo was first celebrated in the United States in Southern California in 1863 as a show of solidarity with Mexico against French rule.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as “the White Album“). It was written by George Harrison, the band’s lead guitarist. The song serves as a comment on the disharmony within the Beatles following their return from studying Transcendental Meditation in India in early 1968.

This lack of camaraderie was reflected in the band’s initial apathy towards the composition, which Harrison countered by inviting his friend and occasional collaborator, Eric Clapton, to contribute to the recording.

Ellen DeGeneres …. “🇺🇸 Sits Down with Waffle House Hero James Shaw Jr. 🇺🇸 …. “!!

ONE BRAVE MAN

Ellen calls James Shaw Jr. a ‘brave man,’ introduces him to Dwyane Wade

As far as I am concerned this was a better way, a better setting and better people to recognize the bravery of James Shaw, Jr.

There was no need for the NRA or the utter idiot in the Oval.

This brave man is better known, better regarded and rewarded because of his deeds.

The important people are with him!

On Wednesday’s episode of “Ellen,” May 2, host Ellen DeGeneres sat down with James Shaw Jr. – the 29-year-old Nashvillian now known as the “Waffle House Hero” after wrestling a gun away from a shooter at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tenn.

During his interview with DeGeneres, Shaw recounted the events of the April 22 attack, which left four dead.

“Wow … You’re a really brave man,” DeGeneres said, and her audience broke into applause.

She also asked Shaw how he felt about being called a hero.

“I don’t have a problem with it,” he said. “It’s just if you’re in that same situation, I want  you to know that a regular guy did it, and I want you to emulate that same thing, and know you have that fire inside yourself.”

The two discussed the GoFundMe campaign Shaw had set up for funeral expenses for the victims, as well as the campaign for Shaw and his daughter set up by journalist Yashar Ali.
