El Salvador should step away from this old tradition of independence and patriotism...and instead of remebering the past, way past, confront the future with new ideas...lets remeber that instead of colones they have dollars, instead of Banco Nacional they have HSBC and CITI, instead of mercado they have Walmart...and that is their future...and their independence!!!
