Cuban Freedom - When?

I often wonder about Cuba and what it would be if.....if the USA had not tried to help Cuba.  My brother-in-law has written a book on the history of how the USA has come to be a "big Brother" to Cuba.  He explores the whole theory of the Trade Embargo and questions, has this helped?  Is Cuba better off, and what's the next step.  As many Americans know, there are many Cuban people in Florida.  If they were born in Cuba, they cannot go back there.  They are tied to their country they live in now because the Cuban Reigme will not allow "Cuban-born" citizens to return.  How has this impacted the Cuban people living in America?  They are sad.  They long to return and the regime has made it oh so difficult.  So who is winning here?  My brother-in-laws book outlines this perfectly and is a good read for those wanting to understand how Cuba got where it is now.  I am so moved by this book I wanted to share it with you today.  Here is the link to it.  Cuban Exiles on the Trade Embargo.  The photo I am putting with it is what I shot on the 4th of July.  I've left you to wonder about this husband is Cuban.
