My freedom loving brethren, I can not confirm this and I know we have been burned many times before, so click here and here for the latest scoop on the dictator's status. My question to you: how would you celebrate the news?
My reaction: I don't know yet, but it would be a mixture of sadness and joy. Sadness for all those who have died under the brutal system of apartheid Cuba. Sadness for all those in my family who are not alive to see the day of his demise. Sadness and anger at all those who covered for and have defended the dictator knowing all about the atrocities. Sadness for all the destruction that has taken place concerning families, religion, culture, hope, and for what? Power! Sadness that a individual and a system willing to sacrifice its own people and its own country for a deal with evil! Sadness that Celia Cruz will never be able to sing in a FREE Cuba!
Joy knowing that evil is gone. Joy at those in my family who are alive, that they got to see the demise of the dictator. Joy and celebration with family and friends! Joy in celebrating and clinging again to hope that the system will fall and hard!
soooo, I better get that special cigar ready and champagne ready just in case!
I will leave with these videos, just to get you feeling a little emotional!
