‘Cinco de Mayo’ …. “🇲🇽 ‘Hope Can Make the Impossible Possible’ 🇲🇽 …. “!!


~~May 5, 2019~~

TODAY IS THE DAY

Cinco de Mayo is not a celebration of Mexican Independence.


Celebrate the fateful day General Zaragoza fearlessly turned back the Second French Intervention at the Battle of Puebla.

Seems this day is celebrated for the wrong historical reason.

Here’s a short video explaining the history behind the day which we celebrate with music, eating, drinking and partying.

Hope you enjoy it!

What’s the history behind Cinco de Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo, also called Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, holiday celebrated in parts of Mexico and the United States in honor of a military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III.

However, that one successful battle didn’t drive the French out of Mexico.

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s independence day. Mexican independence is celebrated Sept.16. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla.

A Brief History & Facts About Cinco De Mayo Cinco de Mayo on Fifth of May is a commemoration of the victory of an outnumbered army of Mexicans over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla that took place May 5, 1862.

The triumph of the Mexicans proved to the world that their will to defend their nation’s sovereignty would prevail against a powerful foreign invader.

Mexico may have lost battles after that great victory but Cinco de Mayo will always be a reminder to every one that a grain of hope, no matter how small and insignificant to others, can make the impossible, possible.

The Face of Ugly


THE FACE OF UGLY … remember the Ugly American? … Thanks so much for this post!! In a nutshell, I must quote … ‘Discrimination is against the law, just in case anybody has any doubts. We have something called ‘civil rights’ in this country, or at least we did until just over two years ago. I would also remind you that this is a secular nation, meaning our government is not tied to any specific religion and does not make laws that discriminate pro or con any specific religion. Until, that is, the evangelical Christians and Drumpf came together. Suddenly, under the Reign of Trump, it is said to be okay to refuse health care to LGBT people.’

I also thought I knew this country. I had an ardent desire to live here … now, I do not!!

Filosofa's Word

I generally try to avoid ranting.  As a rule, my ‘snarky snippets’ are enough to release the pressure that builds as a result of the chaos and corruption of our government and the idiocy of our society, and then I can go back to breathing and writing more well-reasoned pieces.  But sometimes a number of issues converge, and it is blowup time.  I can either blow up at my family, who do not deserve to be the brunt of my temper, or I can let the steam off here on my blog in an all-out rant.  I choose the latter, so please bear with me.

There are two professions that should be above politics, though there is a necessary correlation:  Teaching and Medicine.  There is only one valid reason to enter into either of these fields, and that is a genuine desire to help people, to make a difference in…
