Flowers, candles and messages pay tribute to the singer outside the Basilica de Guadalupe in Monterrey, Mexico.
Tonantzin is Mother Earth, and Manifest Destiny, is a wrong headed ideology.
Tomorrow thousands of Original Americans will end their walk from Mexico to New York, to celebrate Virgin Guadalupe, aka Tonantzin. On the other hand the wrong idea of Manifest Destiny represents the exclusionary view of white Europeans towards reality. For them the Universe, Mother Earth exists to serve only them.
Now that the limits of growth are everywhere to be seen, it is reassuring to see the hope of so many Original Americans walking through this Earth, to tell the World about Virgen Guadalupe.
¡Viva la Virgen de Guadalupe!
I am sad that Ritchie Valens, and now Jenni Rivera did not get the recognition they deserved while they were with us. They are such saintly figures.
