A Light in the Memory of the Cuban People

Like a light that shines brightly in the memory of all Cubans, this is how we remember the Apostle on his anniversary, José Martí of America, of the world.

He was born on Paula Street, with the conviction of a revolutionary and he demonstrated it from a young age. The pain of his oppressed homeland, slavery and mistreatment of the humble made him a just man and he did not remain silent in the face of such atrocities.

At only 17 years old, he suffered prison. That image served the new generations, as they drive all the independence processes in our country.

But, the Master also left the young reflections and teachings that stimulate education and self-improvement, since “Being cultured is the only way to be free”.

The young Martí did not believe in chains or limitations. His legacy is valid in internationalist doctors, in university students who carry out investigations to detect possible cases of Covid-19.

The new pines of today have much to learn from Martí, following his teachings means preserving his memory, that of our people, an identity that will never die, because it is a light that shines brightly in the memory of all Cubans.
