When the history of how Cuba became free is written, events of the past month — the death of Orlando Zapata Tamayo, Guillermo Fariñas' hunger strike and the bravery of a group of women dressed in white — will make up a pivotal chapter. It has been an amazing moment in Cuban history, and it has been a privilege to do my small part to tell that story.
I plan to continue plugging away, doing my part, convinced more than ever that my efforts and that of others spreading the word about what is happening in Cuba will not be in vain.
But first, I'm going to take a short breather, to clear my head and to re-charge my batteries. It will only be for a few days or so.
Until I return, please make yourself familiar with some of my primary sources to keep up with events. They include Payo Libre, Diario de Cuba, Cubanet, Miscelaneas de Cuba and Martinoticias. You can find the links under "News from Cuba on the left side bar.
And if you haven't yet, visit the right sidebar and read about Cuba's political prisoners.
It is for them and for their families and for a free Cuba my meager efforts are dedicated.
