As I spent time in Cuba and met many people, I was struck by how we are the same. We all have hopes, dreams and desires of a better future. I saw my childrens’ faces in many children there. I kept thinking of the song From A Distance by Bette Midler.
From a distance you look like my friend,
even though we are at war.
From a distance I just cannot comprehend
what all this fighting is for.
I hope as you scan these faces, you’ll also believe that we’re all the same made of the same stuff.
