The Power of Words
I was sitting here thinking what to write: Terrorism, the Bearded Stooge's impending death, Israel and Hezbollah.....and all of a sudden I get the following email, from the trenches of Cuban dissidency:
Compatriotas: Por temor a perjudicarnos no podemos continuar vasallos. LLegó el momento de asumir con dignidad el desafío de reconstruir nuestra nación, El cambio depende de nosotros y está en cada uno de nosotros. Controlemos el miedo.For my non-Spanish speaking readers, that message loosely translates to:
Para Cuba: LIBERTAD, DEMOCRACIA Y AMOR.
My fellow men: We cannnot continue to be followers out of fear. The time has come to accept with dignity the challenge of reconstructing our nation. Change depends on us, and is within everyone of us. Let's control our fear.Strong words, strong meaningful words that need no comments - they speak for themselves. Let's pray that all Cuban dissidents can do as this one suggest: Stop being followers out of fear; bring about change.
For Cuba: FREEDOM, DEMOCRACY AND LOVE.
