Happy Cinco de Mayo                                               

Cinco de Mayo Spanish for “fifth of May” is a celebration held on May 5.  It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).  The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War.  In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin.  Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day-the most important nation patriotic holiday in Mexico which is actually celebrated on September 16th (,

Cinco de Mayo has come to represent a celebration of the contributions that Mexican Americans and all Hispanics have made to America.

Reading about this war on Mexico I discovered it begins with the issue of money and debt.  A debt to be owed to the states unable to pay put Mexico in to battle.  They were destroyed by the USA and it left them in financial distress.   The French wanted payment as well so they thrust forward in to battle with Mexico.  The intent at the time was to divide the USA.  Mexico’s leader sent his troops into battle and sent the French running off the coast.  This was a victory and they celebrate the defeat since 1862.

If you think about it our own personal wars are usually related around debt.   It seems like a never ending battle.  What is so wonderful about this battle, our beliefs that it will come to an end. Implementing strategic planning and taking care of one debt at a time will decrease your debt and point you to freedom.  ”Debt Free,” Isn’t this great news? I sure thank so.  There are many things to celebrate today and it begins with Freedom.

Happy Cinco de Mayo wishing each and every one who celebrates with a purpose to acknowledge the accomplishment of the masses who have contributed to your existence in a special way today just might be the road to a debt free life.
