On Wednesday, after 53 years of economic and travel sanctions, President Obama made a dream come true for our friends in Cuba. The announcement of improved relations between the U.S. and Cuba was met with elation in Cuba. A close friend described the moment in Havana:
“I was walking to work and heard church bells ringing over the din of an ordinary Cuban morning. Next I saw people running into neighbors’ homes shouting and hugging. When I stopped a reveller to ask what was happening, he explained that Cuba and the US are going to be friends again."
For Cubans, it’s really that simple.
