Happy 10, Babalu!

Como Estas?

With those two small words, a legacy was born.  Whether he knew it or not at the time, my uncle has left his mark, not just for our family but for the world. This blog has been recognized in media outlets and by political experts as the place to go for the truth about Cuba.  Just thinking about all the wonderful articles, events, and opportunities Val and the rest of the Babalu contributors have been a part of because of this blog brings great pride to our family.

As with anything political, there have been some arguments, some differences of opinion, and many battles of wits, but at the core is a passion shared by all of us, contributors and readers, for a free Cuba. Throughout the last ten years, we have become a family. We all have a common goal, liberation for our beautiful island and its people, and Babalu Blog will continue the fight for that dream to come true as we have done for the past decade: with truth, passion, and love.

Val, thank you for your passion for Cuba. You have taught me that where we come from is just as important as where we are and where we are going. Thank you for this beautiful gift I can share with my boys. With it I can teach them the same lessons you have taught me.  I love you.
