  •  I dined with a Cuban couple in November (6+ / 0-)

    Wonderful people, wonderful couple, and the husband was pretty Conservative.  In talking with them though, I felt that much of the husband's hyper protective nature comes from what their families survived and continue to survive.

    He arrived in the US a toddler and spouse was in the womb.  Their families left family behind in Cuba.

    He told me in such a heartfelt manner that he wants the embargo lifted because his people are losing their belief in themselves.  He said he sees them losing touch with their potential, and it obviously pains him.

    Great people, I have carried them in my heart since.
