Fidel Castro is dead

Well, it finally happened. Fidel Castro has died.

As a Christian, it’s hard for me to revel in this moment. I guess I’m feeling more a sense of relief on behalf of my parents who had to leave Cuba because of this dictator while they were just starting their lives.

And my maternal grandparents, both of whom also had to leave Cuba to escape the dictator (they and my parents left together). Especially my grandfather, who said he wanted to be buried in a free Cuba.

Sadly, the Castros ruined Cuba so badly it doesn’t appear my grandfather is any closer to his final wish.

The dictatorship has metastasized and has remade Cuba into a warped, hellish vision.

I’m hoping Cuba will be free one day soon. I just don’t see it happening for a long time.
