…I got on a plane to start a new life in the United States. My gratitude, to my parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, who suffered for it on both sides of the Florida Straits, is immeasurable. My gratitude to this great country, for great it is, is equally immeasurable. God bless America.

GRACIAS A DIOS QUE PUDIERON SALIR , CASI TODOS LOS CUBANOS TIENEN UNA HISTORIA QUE CONTAR Y UN AGRADECIMIENTO QUE SENTIR.

I cannot imagine what it was like for you to go the things that you must have experienced in Cuba and the U.S. as a young girl. My H.S, Spanish teacher was a lawyer in Cuba who knew Castro but was arrested as the result of material that was planted in his car.
It was the right thing to do.
