GRACIAS FIDEL POR EXISTIR: FELIZ 90 CUMPLEAÑOS


Nos parece mucho tiempo, pero la obra construida no guarda comparación con el tiempo en que se ha realizado.
Gracias Fidel:
• Por haber sido el artífice de esta Revolución con los humildes, por los humildes y para los humildes.
• Por darnos a los cubanos la oportunidad de conocer lo que es la justicia social, la solidaridad humana, el internacionalismo.
• Por proporcionarnos con cada una de tus palabras y reflexiones, la posibilidad de pensar y analizar por nosotros mismos la importancia de defender con dignidad nuestra independencia y soberanía.
• Porque has sido, eres y seguirás siendo el guía indiscutible de nuestro pueblo y de todos los pueblos del mundo.
• Porque tu definición del concepto de REVOLUCIÓN, nos deja un legado a seguir que servirá para no olvidar nunca todo aquello por lo que has entregado la mayor parte de tu vida.
• Por tu gran sensibilidad humana y sentido íntegro de justicia.
• Por tu firmeza en tus convicciones revolucionarias que han hecho de Cuba un baluarte revolucionario.
• Porque no has dudado nunca ni por un segundo, en hacerle saber al enemigo poderoso, que a Cuba se respeta y que nunca retrocederá al pasado oprobioso de la neo colonia.
• Porque tus enseñanzas perduran en el tiempo y trascienden en el espacio a otras partes del mundo.
• Por haberte sabido ganar con tu ejemplo el cariño y respeto no solo del pueblo cubano, sino de otros pueblos del mundo.
• Porque has sabido impregnar en nuestro pueblo la confianza de que esta Revolución Socialista es irreversible.
• Porque has demostrado que otro mundo mejor es posible.
• Por vislumbrar el presente y futuro con tanta certeza tal cual fueras un profeta.

¡GRACIAS, POR DEDICAR MÁS DE LA MITAD DE TU VIDA A LA OBRA REVOLUCIONARIA, SIN ESPERAR NADA A CAMBIO COMO NO FUERA DAR UNA VIDA DIGNA A TODOS LOS CUBANOS.
SIEMPRE ESTÁS Y ESTARÁS EN NUESTROS CORAZONES Y TENDREMOS PRESENTE TUS ENSEÑANZAS.
¡AH!, Y NUNCA DUDES QUE TE AMAMOS Y ADMIRAMOS PORQUE TE LO HAS GANADO CON TU EJEMPLO.

With reference to a fragment of one of the best known Simple Verses of Cuba’s national hero José Martí, “I Have A White Rose To Tend”, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, began his speech before representatives of Cuban civil society, gathered in the Alicia Alonso Grand Theater of Havana, after thanking the people and government of Cuba for their warm welcome.

“It is an extraordinary honor to be here today,” the President noted, before dedicating some words to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Brussels that same morning, “The thoughts and the prayers of the American people are with the people of Belgium. We stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people (…) we must be together, (…) in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.”

Obama stated that he came to Cuba to offer “el saludo de paz” (a greeting of peace), as part of a process marked by “barriers of history and ideology; barriers of pain and separation.”

During his speech, he recalled the days of the October Crisis, the attack on Playa Girón, and the decades of conflict between the U.S. and Cuba. He noted that there are differences between our peoples, but argued that we must recognize what we have in common, and mentioned the historical and cultural ties that unite both countries, including their tastes in music and sport.

“We both live in a new world, colonized by Europeans. Cuba, like the United States, was built in part by slaves brought here from Africa. Like the United States, the Cuban people can trace their heritage to both slaves and slave-owners. We’ve welcomed both immigrants who came a great distance to start new lives in the Americas. Over the years, our cultures have blended together,” Obama stated. He recalled that the work of Dr. Carlos Finlay in Cuba “paved the way for generations of doctors, including Walter Reed, who drew on Dr. Finlay’s work to help combat Yellow Fever.”

“Just as Martí wrote some of his most famous words in New York, Ernest Hemingway made a home in Cuba, and found inspiration in the waters of these shores,” the President continued, adding, “We share a national past-time – La Pelota (baseball) – and later today our players will compete on the same Havana field that Jackie Robinson played on before he made his Major League debut. And it’s said that our greatest boxer, Muhammad Ali, once paid tribute to a Cuban that he could never fight – saying that he would only be able to reach a draw with the great Cuban, Teofilo Stevenson,” Obama continued.
