Today is a very special day for the citizens of Peru. On July 28, 1821 Peru proclaimed independence from the control of Spain. It took lots of struggles and difficulties but by 1879 Spain finally recognized Peru's independence.
We will miss being in Peru today. There will be special parades and celebrations all over the country. The flag will be displayed on nearly every building. Peruvians are very proud of their country. Today, take a moment and pray for Peru on her independence day!
