Growing up Cuban in the US and hearing about May 20, 1902

My grandmother had a neat life.  She was born in Cuba (1892) when it was still a Spanish colony.   We would often sit around and hear her stories of Cuba, from the celebrations of May 20, 1902, to hurricanes to many other anecdotes of the island.    She left Cuba and died in the US in 1984.

Today, Cuba celebrates another anniversary of that independence day that my grandmother celebrated as a  little girl.  However, there is little to celebrate in Cuba under communism.

The Castro government will put on a show today and celebrate independence day.   However, I am sure that most Cubans won’t really feel it until this corrupt dictatorship passes on.
