If I had suffered from (or knew people who had suffered) under the oppression of Fidel Castro, I suppose I’d be dancing in the streets as we’ve seen in Miami. I’m not so inclined.
It is clear that Fidel had lost his grip on power in the last decade or the progress the U.S. has made in opening relations would never have happened.
The U.S. should continue to move forward and expand on progress made, not erase progress made in the last few years by Barack Obama and Pope Francis in collaboration with Raul Castro.
As one door closes–the passing of Fidel Castro–may the door open wider for new opportunities between the U.S. and Cuba. U.S. leadership can be a source of inspiration to the Cuban government, not seek further retribution for sins of the past. It’s time to look forward.
Thought for the week:
