Quote of the Week: Who Will Now Stand for Cuban Freedom?

Wednesday, December 24, 2014
Why are we [the new generations] sad?  Because what happened last week is that we realized that if the United States of America does not stand up for freedom, then who does? If we are not the ones that tell the entire world, even if we stood alone, even if we said that we are the only ones that are going to stand for freedom. If we, the United States of America, do not stand up for freedom, then what was it for? What did the hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of people, who have died for the freedom of Cuba -- what did those lives mean?
