The government stripped my mom of everything and we moved to the United States. But my home is Cuba. I can’t forget it.

“I left Cuba 46 years ago when I was a teenager. The government stripped my mom of everything and we moved to the United States. The U.S. is my country and I will always be grateful to it for opening its arms to my family, but my home is Cuba. I can’t forget it. I am glad that Obama was brave enough to come here. It had to be done and it is time for the two countries to come together. Beyond politicians, we still have connections to our relatives and we have to forgive and forget and think about the future. The problem is the older and younger generations see it differently. The Cuban people have something special to offer. They are a happy people, no matter what has happened to them. They take pride in being from Cuba. I am glad you are seeing Cuba now because you are seeing it as it has been for the last 50 years. It will always be beautiful, but it is going to change. It will be up to the people who stayed here and endured to decide what those changes will be.”
