It’s a good thing that more and more Cuban ‘Pedro Pan’ children are telling their stories

(My new post about Pedro Pan kids) It’s an amazing story. It involved children, from 5 to 18 years old. It happened almost daily in Cuba as parents took their children to the airport, put them on plane and waved goodbye.  My parents looked into it but decided that we would leave together rather than separately.

July 2, 1964 and the day we left Cuba

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 […]

My “abuela” and stories about May 20, 1902

(My new American Thinker post about May 20, 1902) Another May 20th and memories of my abuela: My grandmother had a neat life. She was born in Cuba (1892) when it was still a Spanish colony. She recalls the celebrations on May 20, 1902 when Cuba finally became an independent country. She left Cuba and […]

Happy Mother’s Day to our “mamis cubanas”

All of us have a picture like this in our photo books. This is my mom Angela in Ciego de Avila, her hometown.   It's the kind of picture that reminds us of our elegant moms and a happier Cuba. We remembered Cuban mothers with a couple of our "cubanito friends"....... Our guests were  Amarilys Gacio […]

Embargo? What about the $7 Billion that the Castro Dictatorship Expropriated!

(My new American Thinker post) We hear that it’s time to lift the Cuban embargo. However, lifting the embargo means nothing unless you are willing to talk about the $7 billion that the Castro regime expropriated in violation of property rights and the rule of law. According to Leon Neyhakh, we must address the issue of […]
