All Our Honor and Praise to Those Who Carried out the Revolution As We Congratulate the New Leadership of Cuba

On this historic day, which marked the first defeat of U.S. imperialism in Latin America, when in just 72 hours Cuba repelled the mercenary invasion at Playa Girón, we salute with deep emotion and gratitude the historic leadership of the Revolution under the leadership of Fidel and Raúl who filled the Cuban nation with respect, honor and dignity.

They were able to achieve the most remarkable defeat of the most powerful country on earth, just 90 miles away; instilling pride in the Cuban people and all of those in Latin America and the world who feel the Revolution like it was ours.

A Revolution Made with Love

By Yaima Puig Meneses and Leticia Martínez Hernández on April 12, 2018

Few dates in the life of a young person are more fondly remembered than a fifteenth birthday party. The white dress, the waltz, the flowers, the photos, the nerves, the company of one’s parents and the first love… and of course the toast.

And if this event takes place at an extraordinary place, the emotions are even greater. And this is what 22 teenagers at the Solidarity with Panama special education school experienced last night, as they celebrated their 15th birthdays with a very special guest: Cuban President Raúl Castro Ruz.

Some in wheelchairs, took to the dance floor with their partners. Dressed impeccably in white, with happiness etched in their faces, the names of each one and that of their parents was announced, plus their favorite songs, perfume, and food, their zodiac sign, and the name of their loves, kept secret until the moment.
