The big news this morning for many Americans is that Fidel Castro is stepping down as president of Cuba. After almost fiftyyears of rule, his name has become so closely linked to his country that people all over the Western Hemisphere are wondering what will happen next. Predictions are impossible, but one thing we can be sure of is that there will be big changes. And in Nov. 2008 a new president will be elected in the U.S. who will bring changes no matter which party takes the office. After almost fifty years of suspicion and bad feeling between these two countries that are only 90 miles apart geographically, there is hope that a closer relationship can be built. A relationship built on the feelings of people in both Cuba and the U.S. who recognize that we have much in common. Let’s hope the wishes of people will determine the future rather than the competition of governments.
