San Luis de la Paz, Gto. Thursday, September 15, 2011. Tonight, when the Mayor of San Luis de la Paz, Javier Becerra, came out to the balcony of City Hall and cried Viva Mexico!, we vibrated with excitement and pride. Thousands gathered at the Main Square, responded louldly in unison Viva! In this way, we recalled the beginning of the war of independence, which happened 201 years ago. The national festivity was supplemented with a music program at the Matamoros Esplanade. The finalists of the fair´s amateur contest, the Sentinel Group and the Sonora Dinamita participated in this show. It was a moving experience for those of us who returned to Mexico, and attended the cry of independence after several years.
