The Pain of Exile

Very few people in the world know the pain of exile better than Cubans. For decades, their families have been separated because of a murderous, communist regime. I can't imagine the pain they feel. The worst is having a family member die and you couldn't say goodbye or be with them. That is the daily reality of Cubans in exile. I think that reality is summed up perfectly in the link below. A beautiful, heartbreaking post about exile and family. Written by Val Prieto at Babalu Blog , it is a must read and make sure you have tissues ready. You will cry reading it. One day, Cuba will be free. And families won't have to go through this anymore.
