Happy Birthday Mexico!
Today is the Bicentennial celebration of the United States of Mexico. Two hundred years ago today, Mexico threw off the yolk of Spain to become its own nation...or at least started the process. 100 years later they had a 2nd revolution.
For many years, Mexicans talked about the possibility of a 3rd civil war taking place in 2010...but the year is almost out and it looks like all is calm south of the border. That's a good thing.
So congrats and felicidades Mexico. Let's hope the next two hundred years goes great!
