True Story


The following is a serious post


straight up this is what happened.


DSCN7192


See the Americans staring at that tiny speck in the water


Seems our ship almost swamped this little tiny fishing boat of DSCN7196



eighteen people,


in the middle of the ocean,


no land in sight.


DSCN7195


Eighteen people from the neighboring country of


DSCN7196


Cuba!


DSCN7203


Cubans- maybe not so happy to see the Coast Guard.


DSCN7193


Americans staring at Cubans being “Rescued.”


DSCN7202


We stayed by the fishing boat until the Coast Guard came


and asked us to leave.


In the end they get to go back to Cuba,


It is a sad story,


a true story.


DSCN7199


That makes you wonder how desperate you would have to be?


To get in this boat,


with eighteen people,


to try to make it to America.

Not a day goes by that I don't count my blessings for having the opportunities I have. I love America.
