"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

Jose Marti would say NO to shaking hands with the Castro regime
(My new Babalu post) We remember that Jose Marti died on May 19, 1895. It’s an important date for most Cubans.
How should we remember Jose Marti or live up to his ideals?
We can do two things.
First, support Cuban bloggers, dissidents & “Las Damas”. They are persecuted by the Castro dictatorship for posting their thoughts online or expressing them in public.
Second, don’t legitimize the Castro brothers by treating them like elected leaders or representatives of the Cuban people. They don’t deserve it. The Cuban people have never selected this regime. In fact, thousands have fled the regime over the years.
Sitting down with dictators like Fidel and Raul Castro? Jose Marti would say no! P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
