Okay, so what is all the hype about El Grito? What is it? I found myself asking THE SAME THING, after finding out it means “The Cry”. Well, it IS a big deal! It was the cry that signaled the “cry” for independence of Mexico! 🙂 So, yes, a HUGE reason to celebrate!
Lost in the activities of El Grito, I found the students’ energy exciting and I was honored to be included as a part of this! 🙂 A huge food bazaar, Mariachi’s playing the traditional music, clubs from ASF represented, to ballons, pinata’s of every shape, size color, flags, painted faces, and so much more, EL GRITO!
At 6:28, I raced into the library and got SKYPE working and forgot about the time difference! OH NO! 🙂 However, I did manage to catch the XC TEAM thanks to the FYI’ing of the Taylors and it was so GREAT to see them! It made El Grito night perfect.
With having so many cool literary magazine students here, as well as reuniting with the Seaford gang, then later that night talking with Priyanka what more could you want out of a night, it was PERFECT! Friends are so much more important than anything, and tomorrow is the big day for XC their first meet! 🙂 It is metaphoric for them, tomorrow is their day to be INDEPENDENT of former times and release their possibilities!
Not much more can make a great beginning to El Grito, in Mexico and abroad…I am rich in close friends and love them dearly….:) So yes……EL GRITOOOOOOOOOOOO 🙂
