Quote of the Day: A Stark Reminder of Cuba's Tragedy

Thursday, December 26, 2013
While the fate of the people may never be known or what happened to them, our thoughts and prayers are with their families and loved ones during this difficult time. For those who know of a loved one attempting to make the illegal voyage across the Mona Passage, do your best to reason with them. Tell them to not go out to sea, to not entrust their lives to a smuggler, and to not attempt the treacherous voyage. In doing so, they risk losing their lives.
-- U.S. Coast Guard Cmdr. Drew Pearson, pursuant to calling off the search for six Cubans (three men, three women) feared dead at sea, The Miami Herald, 12/26/13
