Centenary of the Independence of Mexico free pdf Excerpt from Centenary of the Independence of Mexico: Sept- 27, 1821-Sept- 27, 1921 Never has mere greatness conferred immunity, and the punishment of the Only Judge fell alike upon Tyre as upon Carthage. To understand the Mexican soul, one must relive, in thought, the life of that complex people, of that people which, with heavy pack on shoulders, gaze earthward fixed but mind Godward bent, forever moves onward, in a never-ending pilgrimage. Poor pilgrim people! The Aztec began the centuries-long march in search of the land flowing with milk and honey. From the frozen deserts of the north, with his never tiring, never ceasing dog trot he came, guided by his priest and impelled by the legend which was to bring him to the place where the eagle would devour the snake. He reaches a fertile valley or a plain which promises easy subsistence, and there he stays for a year - or a century. There the fathers die, and the sons plow in the same furrow which their sires have turned or, they lift pack to shoulder and resume the interminable march through the pathless waste in search of the promised land. At times they find athwart their way new peoples, whose roots are already firmly embedded in the soil, and with whom they struggle in sanguinary battle until they vanquish, or arc themselves vanquished. They learn new things and acquire new ways - here, a peculiar method and style of construction- there, the custom of sacrificing prisoners on the altars of cruel divinities. But always they must move on, ever southward, in search of the legendary eagle, the eagle which is to devour the serpent. A people obedient to the priest and magistrate are they- a people of elementary virtues and of passions likewise elementary- a youthful people and, like youth, strong, upright, and innocent when they reach the valley of Anahuac, where before long we find them firmly established and imposing their overlordship upon the neighboring nations, between whiles, as they build, legislate, rule, and dream. They dream of the ancient legend which tells them that a day will come when their will must be submitted to another and more powerful will, a time when the "eagle-chieftains" and "tiger-chief-tains" will be obliged to render tribute to the white men who, in the fullness of time, will appear from the east. Meanwhile, the Aztec throne blazes with splendor, and on the cruel altars the red blood flows in streams. The multitude bow their foreheads to the earth before the God of War and their radiant sovereign- the hard-muscled arm launches the dart which pierces the enemy breast or, in single combat the battle is won, the life of the vanquished being spared so that later his palpitating heart may be offered to the cruel divinity.
