Quote of the day

Dagoberto Valdés comments on Cubans in exile while responding to letters from readers in Diario de Cuba:

“I never contemplate anything for Cuba without taking them into consideration, without thinking how they will view it, what they will think about it, or criticize it, whether those that live here or those that suffer because of the nostalgia and exile. With your permission, please allow me to make a suggestion to you: Never hoist on your shoulders, or the shoulders of the exile community a burden that corresponds to the system that oppresses us. We would all be together if Cuba were free and democratic. Knowing, engaging, and responding to the deep roots of the exile community is a way to heal the divisions that have bled this nation.”
