The year is 1810 and Spain holds a tight territorial leash on our dear country Mexico. It is an early September morning and an oppressed Mexican community awaits a priest named Hidalgo on their beloved church steps in the city of Dolores. They did not know that the words they would soon hear would catapult their lives into liberation. It is on September 16th of the year 1810 that Catholic Priest , Hidalgo, ignited the fire in the indigenous people to retaliate against their oppressors. This revolutionary events is known as the “Cry of Dolores “ and celebrated today as the Mexican ‘Dia de Independencia’ .
