I mentioned yesterday that one of the reasons I started this blog and jump into this fray day after day is so that the next generation of Cuban-Americans and Americans born of Cuban parents in exile understand our reality. While it’s important to assimilate, one must know their past so as not to relive it.
Yesterday, I received an email from a young Cuban-American thanking me for my work here in Babalu and attached was a link to a blog piece she wrote inspired by the article in the Miami Herald on Monday.
I urge each and every one of you to drop by and read Cuba Libre!
The post, she said, is dedicated to me because I am the epitomy of Miami. I fought the lump in my throat as I read it.
Gracias, Auspicious1, for the kind words and the excellent expression of your feelings. But, I can assure you, that post of yours isnt solely mine. It belongs to all of us Cubans in exile as we all, whether in Miami or New Jersey or Virginia, should echo your sentiments.
