Saturday, May 23, 2009
Cuba's Generation Y blogger, Yoani Sanchez -- named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2008 -- perfectly encapsulates the Cuban people's view of the latest U.S. efforts to renew migration talks with the Cuban regime.

"...talking to people my age I realized that a wish to leave the country is widespread, perhaps more than people think... The truth is that I do not think so much about material things that can be found there, but about everything that I can do there... Anything, as long as I can decide... to express my political views without fear and to be able to associate myself with these ideas. Finally, I want to be myself, which is, at the end, what I'm looking for."
