This December 17 just register as a significant day for Cuba and quintessential for humanity. A date that commemorates the passing of Simón Bolívar, and represents a rebirth of the Liberator; one day revered by the Cuban popular religion which promises to San Lazaro, El Viejo or Babalu Aye, according to the creed of every Cuban met.
For if it seems little, the first Latin American Birthday pontiff, His Holiness Pope Francis. But no one expected such a day would mark the end of the imprisonment of three innocent young people who were so unjust convictions as prolonged due to side of love. Gerardo, Ramón and Antonio belong to the lineage of young revolutionaries whose veins runs the blood of our very patriotic mambises and Centennial Generation.
All Cubans were in front of televisions this memorable December 17, 2014, to watch the images of the return of Gerardo, Ramón and Antonio, three of the Cuban Five, victims of a rigged trial in the State of Florida, which kept for more than 15 years in US prisons for fighting against terrorism.
The arrival in Cuba, the conversation with the President, General Raul Castro, the memory of Fidel in each of them, the embrace with the wives, mothers, sisters, sons, hosting in the neighborhood, were images broadcast by the Cuban National Television News, the Cuban commitment today overflowing with joy upon hearing the release of these heroic sons, and the agreement of the governments of the United States and Cuba to establish diplomatic relations.
