To the Editor:

In response to a recent letter, I would like to ask this person what does he truly knows about Cuba?

What right does he have to criticize a place that has its own right to self-determination?

Not all the people of Cuba are Miami-driven,

anticommunist, as the press many times have portrayed the Cuban community.

I was born in Cuba, and lived out of Cuba for more than 23 years and I truly believe that is about time that the government of the United States realizes that the only victim of the embargo is the Cuban people, not the Cuban government.

So, to the person criticizing the senator for his noble deeds of trying to bring some understanding into this obsolete and cruel measure, I tell you get truly informed about Cuba and then you may know what you are talking about.
