I write a lot about my father here at Babalu. He’s a very special man and one that, despite the fact that he never tried to influence me on my opinions about Cuba and castro, is primarily responsible for how I feel about the island and my culture. He has taught me by example and I dont know what my life would be like had I not had him be a part of it.
I am lucky. There are many many Cubans who grew up without a father because of fidel castro, who had them killed simply for refusing to bow to his dictates.
The link below is to a documentary (in Spanish) titled Tributo a Papa, a Tribute to Father, hosted by the site El Veraz in Puerto Rico. It’s an hour long and interviews many Cubans: daughters, sons, wives, brothers, friends of the many men who died by the order of fidel castro.
If you’re Cuban, and you havent already seen Tributo a Papa, do so. You will never forget it.
