One public school social studies class must have told me some brief history of the island nation just 90 miles off the Florida coast...or maybe not. We seem so close to re-establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba that posts from her past seem to be well-timed.
Reader, please understand that I have no political motivations within my posts here. I am on a journey to learn about the present by the bits and pieces I uncover from the past. My conclusions are drawn from limited research on the web (it must be true, I read it on the Internet!). I welcome anyone who might like to comment and set the record straight, or simply go opinion for opinion with me. I'm game.
Note: the is a story of the monument to the USS Maine in 2013 how it was being restored after years of uncertainty. Now that we are on the verge of new relations with Cuba it will be interesting to see if history repeats itself yet again.
