Today in class, I made the students repeat the following Pledge at the end of class. I shook their hands as they left the room.
Cinco de Mayo Pledge
I hereby declare that I recognize September 16th as Mexico’s Independence Day. Furthermore, I declare Cinco de Mayo to be an American celebration and am aware that it is not celebrated nationwide in Mexico. I know that historically, it was one battle against the French. I pledge that I will do my duty as an enlightened American to inform the ignorant of this knowledge.
