Today is a sad day for Freedom. It is a sad day for the Cuban Americans of the United States of America and the Cuban people still on the Island. Today, a slap in the face is given to all Cubans and Cuban Americans. The raising of our very own flag – a symbol of Freedom to all the world will be raised in a Country that not only oppresses its people, but hates Freedom. As we are witness to this today, let’s remember that Cuba is still under communist rule, bringing nothing but oppression and pain to the Cuban people. Nothing has changed and nothing will change unless the Cuban Government starts to realize that Freedom is essential and that the Cuban people deserve to be treated as equal human beings and have open and fair elections.
