Respect and tolerance

Yoani Sánchez in New York
I respect the different opinions on the embargo. Why? Because they are born out concern for Cuba. There are people who believe the embargo will help Cuba become more democratized. There are also those of us who believe Cuba will become more democratized without it. But all of us agree that we want democracy in Cuba.
- Yoani Sánchez, Cuban blogger

I assume that Iroel Sanchez, the editor of the pro-Castro blog, La Pupila Insomne, will read this short but eloquent post by Yoani. Iroel often reblogs your postings when the subject matter tends to reflect negatively on US policies. While there is a "snowball's chance in hell" that he would re-blog this particular post on his site, I am pleased to imagine that he will at least read it. It is this kind of 'respect and tolerance' that is so lacking in the Castro regime. Thank you for sharing this post on your site.

Agree with Yoani and Moses... Lets hope that democracy, tolerance and respect is getting closer for Cubans.. a good reward after 54 years of non-existent
