Cerebrating Hispanic Heritage Month #LatinoHeritageMonth
I wrote this in 2010 but it speaks to me today. Recent events make me reflect on the historical struggle for justice - and how if we are not careful- people will write a story that will cause us to hate our own.
The Ecuadorian Massacre of 1922 - or - #LasCrucesSobreElAgua - is one of those stories. The government reports that only 100 were killed on November 15, 1922. But other sources cite over 1500 people were killed that day.

August 10th, 1809 marks the first battle cry for independence from Spain in Ecuador. The battle was not successful - Ecuador gained independence many years later. But even then, slavery was not abolished (1852) even when Ecuador gained independence from Spain (1822) and from Gran Colombia (1830). So when I think about independence days, I always wonder - independence for who?
Every cry for freedom is important - but we must be willing to fight for everyone’s freedom. Everyone.
Happy Ecuador Appreciation Month!
