Fidel Castro is gone, but will never be forgotten. He stood up to the mighty Americans for decades. The trade embargo was a partial failure. Cuba was able to institute self reliance as a way of life. They have done well in training medical practitioners and have exported them. They have not been afraid to send medical personnel to Ebola infected African areas.
This is great a humanitarian move and Cuba must be commended for this heroism despite the American embargo.
We mourn with all well thinking persons … the loss of this great man of change, Fidel Castro dead at 90.
