Forensic experts have positively identified the remains in Mexico of at least one of the 43 students who were kidnapped, handed over by police to a drug gang and brutally murdered and disfigured with fire.
Argentine forensic specialists working on identification of body parts found charred in a dump in southern Mexico, have positively identified the remains of Teacher student, Alexander Mora, who went missing on September 26 along with the other 42 students in the town of Iguala, Guerrero state.
With the identification Mora's remains, maybe some closure could now come to the scores of worried and distraught parents who have searched and demonstrated across Mexico pleading for the safe return of their children. Sadly, logic infers from the identification of Mora's remains, that none of the parents would ever see their lost children alive again.
And the anger felt from Mexico City to Guerrero state and beyond over the disappearance of the innocent students - confirmed now to have met their deaths on a dump in southern Mexico, underscores the sentiments of law-abiding Mexicans upset with the government's apparent impotence to put an end to the violence which has consumed some 100,000 lives since 2007.
President Pena Nieto's plans submitted to the Mexican Congress to reform policing in Mexico have obviously come to late for the parents of the lost 43 students. Thus, amid continuing protests and demonstrations, some Mexicans are beginning to speak of a "flower revolution" to bring law and order and justice to address the ongoing violence in Mexico.
