The President visits Cuba
It has been over 90 years since a US President visited Cuba. I feel it is the right time for this to happen.
The "Cuban people" have suffered greatly under the dictatorship of Castro rule, especially the young.
America is only 90 miles from the shore of Cuba and former President Obama has broken the barrow that has isolated so many people for so many years.
It's kind of like when slavery was on the shore of America for over 400 years, and no one was willing to take the first step to free the slaves.
President Obama said; "I know one visit, and one president, cannot erase decades of history that have left so many Cubans in poverty and exile.
But sometimes the most important changes begin with the smallest step.
I believe in the Cuban people and their desire to build a future of their own choosing. And I believe this changes the way we do things between our countries and over time, it will make all things possible." The question is; Will this continue under the next presidential administration, or will slavery continue to grow? Only time will tell. Will you let me know what you think?
