there are more people in Mexico that Spanish then in Spain.... Weird right its most likely a population ratio. Or perhaps the more diversity that there is in spain.

The Mexican Flag possesses an interesting story behind it. According to legend, the Aztecs established their civilization in what is now Mexico City from a divine ordinance; the gods of the Aztecs told their faithful people to build a city where they would find a majestic eagle seated on a nopal devouring a serpent. The Aztecs spotted that eagle in the lake- island of Tenochtitlan (present- day Mexico City), which became to be the center of the prosperous Aztec Empire and continues to be the capital of the Mexican nation. Despite this civilization's tragic fall, the people of Mexico continue to commemorate and give honor to their country's primitive beginnings through the grand Mexican flag. Because of its proud and rich history, the Mexican flag has actually been deemed as the most beautiful in the world during an internet contest by Spanish newspaper, 20 Minutos.

I am an only child that was diagnosed with SLE Lupus since the age of 8. I have been fighting Lupus for 9 years and I do not give up on my studies, even if I have many frequent appointments. I do not take this condition as a disability, but as a gift that has made me stronger and aspire to do many great things in life. It may be difficult dealing with it as times, but I am able to push myself through all of the sickness and continue living life to the fullest because one day I know I will make a difference, especially in the medical community, especially Hematology. This is because my health condition has helped me open my eyes and mind to not judge others, but to help the ones in need, the same way my family and I were supported throughout my hospitalization. In order for me to feel satisfied, I would want to "return the favor" and save countless children in the future by becoming a Pediatric Hemalogist-Oncologist.
