Celebration More Than a Chance to Shout: 'El Grito' Evokes Pride in Culture and Freedom

This year, I participated in two events to commemorate “El Grito” (The Shout), the celebration of Mexican Independence Day. On Saturday, I was at El Pueblo where Telemundo was broadcasting live and I was able to speak to a national audience about Los Angeles’ strong Mexican roots and history. On Monday, my wife, mother and I attended the El Grito ceremonies at City Hall. Happy Independence Day Mexico!
