Wow. The "Chocolate Rain" tag was actually justified.
On a more personal note, I did some growing up in Mexico and have family there. When all you hear on the news is violence, illegal immigration and drugs, it's hard not to get depressed about it. Then you see something like this and remember that there still are incredible people there.
While I'm halfway tempted to end on some note about alcohol or Tijuana, I won't. Five stars.
There may be some cool folks in Mexico, I've been to Chihuahua, myself. But there's a fucking gunfight happening right outside an elementary school. Their government is broken, cartels run most of the country, one teacher won't save them.
There's no single solution (although I think reducing US demand for black market drugs through decriminalization and regulation would help), but it's hard to think of people more essential to a better future for Mexico than those protecting and educating children.
Ha, these guys are amateurs. In America, the gunfights happen _in_ the schools. Plus, pipe bombs!

We. have. to. save. them. WHY AREN'T WE SAVING THEM?!
I was talking about saving the innocents caught in the crossfire but yeah, I suppose we should do something for the addicts, too.

There's a medal for this, right?

This is both the most horrifying and inspiring thing I have seen in a long time.
As an aside, "Nothing is happening, just keep your head down" has, until recently, been the Mexican government's official response to the problem of drug violence.
Right! Time to move to Mexico, mark.

Life during wartime is a trying time for those not borne of violence.

Sweet and sad. Though I'm trying to understand why she recorded it.

does teaching have a Nobel Prize award?
