There’s one question that all the world is asking: what will happen in Cuba?
And there isn’t an answer. Cuba lives through its people and the people live day by day, they can wait, they can remain the same or change if needed, they don’t make hypothesis, they can sustain fear and pain. Those who hoped to see some change during the recent past years have got this one wrong: 31 December 2008 all cubans stayed at home waiting to see the Leader Maximo, everybody, sad maybe, but not disappointed.
The sensation is that of something to happen, because something will happen. To be disappointed will be those who asked “what” as the answer has already been determined. Cuban people awaiting will show us the answer to another question: “how” they will continue to live.
