I too echo the thanks for moving forward to the normalization of relations between the US and Cuba against old entrenched ideologies and those who prefer to linger in the past. This was long overdue and a step in the right direction. Now is the time to fully lift the embargo. A big thanks to President Obama for his statesmanship and courage in the face of great odds. And given the foul and vulgar atmosphere of this presidential election cycle, he will surely be missed.
