In response to what you are saying of La Llorona being a victim. I'd have to agree, but only to our present time.

A victim of her ugly cause for drowning her child. I truely believe that she has been cursed, damned or sent to sorrow for her mortal crime.

So I do think her ghost is NOW a victim of her crime. Sent to find her child to end her sorrow of regret.

The question I have now is, was she a victim before she became known to us as "La Llorona"?

Anita Marie

La Llorona may be cursed and damned but you have to wonder...what price do we as a soceity pay when we STAND BY AND WATCH each other sink into such despair and desperation that we could destroy our own flesh and blood.

Think about it: these " Monsters " don't torment their victims do they? In La Llorona's legend anyone who crosses her path pays a terrible price.

Just a thought.

Genaro L. Zamora (Niyorco)

Is that price a result of evil, or of la lloronas desperation to ease her suffer?

Anita Marie

I think that it's a result of the evil...Evil doesn't just happen. It's grown and harvested and then it's inflicted.

I think stories like this remind us that our actions aren't just moments in time, they go on without us.

"I think stories like this remind us that our actions aren't just moments in time, they go on without us."

I so agree with what you said here. But to tell you the truth, I think that La Llorona's evil is what brought her to her sorrow of suffer. You know, I love the tale. It's a great mystery that brings us to question our own answers.

Such as, Is she evil? Is she damned to a searching hell? Does she seek revenge of her sorrow on us mortals? Or even one of my favorite mystery questions. What would happen if she did find her lost child or children?

Neliey Sanches

I dont agree for some reson.

Neliey Sanches

the part when u said I think la llorona has a lot to teach us about the pain of chosing to be a victim. but i want to tell u what do you mean about that?

Neliey Sanches

If you want to know the legend of La Llorona, I say you find www.lallorona.com. From somebody who did a research paper, on her, that's one of the best spots. Also, the story of La Malinche/Doña Marina is a very nice beginning to her legend. La Llorona stories are kind of like the Ghostly Hitchhiker: there are many variations and nobody knows where exactly it started.

Genaro, I love your first comment about La Llorona. Yes, the woman who became La Llorona was evil. To kill her children in a jealous rage, even if it was a brief moment of insanity or the effects of post-partum depression, there is no way to look around it as evil.

However, does the punishment really fit the crime? Should Andrea Yates be forced to haunt her tub where she murdered her children forever? Or should Susan Smith be forced to walk along the shores of the body of water she drowned her children in forever?

What makes La Llorina a tragic victim is that she cannot rest. She is doomed to walk the shores of wherever people in her forever. Whether this is punishment for betraying the Aztec people (La Malinche) or she is simply a mestiza girl being punished for a jealous, raging, unforgivable moment, what makes her tragic is that she receives no finality.

Hey, Jovanna, you had a few questions about La Llorona. I did a major paper in college on La Llorona. There are as many origins for La Llorona as there are stars in the sky. Everyone has their own little version they make their own. Honestly, according to the lallorona.com timeline, the BEST resource for La Llorona, the oldest Mexcian version is the story of La Malinche, the indigenous woman who organized the other tribes against the Aztecs. If you have any questions, just reply here.

Ahhh but does the punishment fit the crime? Only the one who is punished can answer this truthfully. The fact is. To some, she is being punished.....to others, she is seeking revenge. Only a true question that has no answer. A mystery that grips our interest!

xiomara   millan

my parents have heard her cry cause live close to wayer in sonar mexico

Ariel Rude

Other than the fact that some people think that La Llorona is evil, the fact of this is that she was a person who was clouded by judgement by the man that she loved and the only way to get back at him was to lose the one thing that she loved in the world, her own flesh and blood. She may be a victim, but she is also a murderer.

Yo.

i have just recently got involved in the story of la llorona. i was never told the story growing up because my mother sees it as a folk tale. but it has really intrigued me. i love all the different versions of the story and i would really love to see the movie

ghernandez

i have heard her cry where i live.

Jose Negrete

I come from Mexico City, Ilive now Indianapolis IN, in 1984 I have experience about la "llorona"
my father and me we watch tv. around the 12:00 in the night,and she start to cry, well is real cry is real scream very loud and that is no human because is very loud if some lady scream like this
is probably she need visit the doctor next day because severe damages in the throat. trustme is extreme scream and you feel you hair start to raise and you skin start to feel chili. and Itell my dad what is that my dad he was like frozen in the chair and he no have answer for that.and I tell,let me see what happen out, and he said stop dont go out.and you can hear the scream low and hi,we hear that for 2 minutes.

in that night 3 people we hear that.after year I try the talk to my dad about that and he no want to talk about it.

two years later I hear that again
you can hear the dog barking and I start to feel that again in that night I sleep in my room whith my cousin and come to visit from Veracruz and he was very sleep but he can hear the last screams and I tell him I feel like somebody die and I teel him tomorrow probably we have bad news. next day one mile away by there seven members the one family die some body sacrifice them. And that is the most extreme experience because the scream advice the death.
I write this because my daugther brought one book last week about
the "banshees" (Irish spirit) and that is very very similar experince, and that book say that is the death messenger and that is true about that. my daugther have 4 years old and I never told her m y experience about this but she bringme this book and is like somebody said remember me. and I decided to look some site to write my trut experience.
the llorona exist.
the banshees too.and both is a death messanger. thank you for read this.
