Watching a documentary about Hungary ’56 reminded me of our Cuban experience
We Cubans have a special place in our hearts for anyone who stood up to communism.
A few days ago, I had a chance to see a documentary about Hungary 1956. It was the the story of Soviet tanks crushing the democratic aspirations of the people of Hungary.
It made me think of Cuba: the refugees, unaccompanied children sent to freedom, people being processed at camps and the freedom that we found in the US or other lands.
I wrote a post at American Thinker today remembering November 1956:
"It was a long time ago but the bravery of the Hungarian people is worth remembering.
I am a strong believer in reminding the younger generation that freedom is not cheap. In fact, many have paid the ultimate price to fight for it.
Many Hungarians did this month in 1956!
Before Prague 1968 or Poland 1980, there was Hungary, one of the great chapters of human valor of the 20th century."
We salute the brave people of Hungary and how they fought for freedom 57 years ago:
