July 2, 1964 and the day we left Cuba

542180_10151379651036335_2085063980_n

Like 50 years ago, I will spend today with my parents, brother & sister.

We will be at a niece's wedding and reminiscing about this day so many years ago.

Once again, I thank my parents, and all of the parents of that generation, for making the tough decision to leave their homeland.

It gave me a chance to grow up in freedom, something that I realize everytime I meet someone who had to stay in Cuba.

HAPPY FREEDOM DAY!
