Roots

Roots

Cuban roots run deep. There is something about not being Cuban that will prevent me from connecting with this place on the deepest level. As an outsider, I will never know the depth of those roots. As a visitor, I will feel the surface. As a mother, imagining my child in this culture, I will come closer. As a human, imagining myself as my neighbor 90 miles away, I will almost reach it… No matter how deeply rooted we are, we certainly have one thing in common… our humanity.
