3 Days of Celebrating Adversity (May 5, 6, and 7)
04 May 2016
Life is full of obstacles, challenges, conflicts and even wars. We win some, we lose some. When we lose, we hurt; yet we hope it helps us grow stronger. When we win, we celebrate!
This Thursday commemorates one such celebration, the defeat of the French in east-central Mexico by the outnumbered Mexican army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862. The rag-tag army of 2,000 Mexicans, Led by Texas-born General Zaragoza, stood up against the army of 6,000 French soldiers, in what has become a true symbol that no matter what lies ahead, we can overcome.
Come out this Thursday to celebrate this simple truth, "we shall overcome!" To make it easier, three lively venues in Shekou have prepared some special Cinco De Mayo (means May 5th in Spanish) parties. In fact, two of these are extended parties going on Friday and Saturday as well!
