    No, Cuba won’t need to be freed from another influence if she is freed by the U.S.—her native inhabitants are strong and given a fresh chance to capitalize on their regained freedom, they will appreciate it more than ever and not lose it as they have in the past…

    ...for, in the past, they weren’t truly free.

    It is difficult to know what freedom is until you’ve had it taken from you.  Even many here in the U.S. haven’t the slightest clue as to what it means to be free.  For them, it is the choice between chocolate or vanilla ice cream with a strong military and Constitution to protect them from the harsh realities of life!

    Best wishes to true, kind-hearted Cubans and a prayer for the deliverance of those who are under the influence of evil.
