Talking the talk, and walking the walk

The Cuban American National Foundation moved quickly in taking advantage of the new "aid rules".
They are sending direct help to Cuban families in dire straits -or the ones rendered homeless, since basically everyone in Cuba is dire straits- through Western Union.
The program will send a $100.00 gift that will make all the difference in the world for a family in distress, and which is something that we all can afford.
I wonder if this gesture is going to demonize Jorge Mas Santos and Joe Garcia even more.
Remember, the most important resource of a future free Cuba are its inhabitants, and those we need to help to survive today, so they can thrive tomorrow. They have carried the burden of living in a floating prison, but they will be the ones reconstructing the country in a future of freedom.
