    I got this in an e-mail...just wanted to share with everyone.

    Dear Editor, Times-Dispatch:?
    >>'Each year I get to celebrate Independence Day twice. On
    June 30 I? >>celebrate my independence day, and on July 4 I
    celebrate America? >>'s. This year is special, because it
    marks the 40th anniversary of my? >>independence.?
    >>'On June 30, 1968, I escaped Communist Cuba, and a few
    months later, I was? >>in the United States to stay. That I
    happened to arrive in Richmond on? >>Thanksgiving Day is
    just part of the story, but I digress.? >>?
    >>'I've thought a lot about the anniversary this year. The
    election-year? >>rhetoric has made me think a lot about Cuba
    and what transpired? >>there. In the late 1950s, most Cubans
    thought Cuba needed a change, and? >>they were right. So
    when a young leader came along, every Cuban was at? >>least
    receptive.? >>?
    >>'When the young leader spoke eloquently and passionately
    and denounced the? >>old system, the press fell in love with
    him. They never questioned who? >>his friends were or what
    he really believed in. When he said he would? >>help the
    farmers and the poor and bring free medical care and
    education to? >>all, everyone followed. When he said he
    would bring justice and equality? >>to all, everyone said,
    'Praise the Lord.' And when the young leader said,? >>'I
    will be for change and I'll bring you change,' everyone
    yelled, 'Viva? >>Fidel!'?
    >>'But nobody asked about the change, so by the time the
    executioner's guns? >>went silent, the people's guns had
    been taken away. By the time everyone? >>was equal, they
    were equally poor, hungry, and oppressed. By the time?
    >>everyone received their free education, it was worth
    nothing. By the time? >>the press noticed, it was too late,
    because they were now working for? >>him. By the time the
    change was finally implemented, Cuba had been? >>knocked
    down a couple of notches to Third-World status. By the time
    the? >>change was over, more than a million people had taken
    to boats, rafts, and? >>inner tubes. You can call those who
    made it ashore anywhere else in the? >>world the most
    fortunate Cubans. And now I'm back to the beginning of my?
    >>story.? >>?
    >>'Luckily, we would never fall in America for a young
    leader who promised? >>change without asking, what change?
    How will you carry it out? What will? >>it cost America ??
    >>'Would we?'?
