Cuba, Dec 29.- This is a landscape that gives life, a sublime place where a dream was reborn and became that of millions.
In this landscape, where slender palms grow, alongside intense colors that were never for sale, a human canvas was painted marked by the hopes of those who took up arms and worked hard: men-children with unkempt beards and hair falling onto their rebellious shoulders, young women made powerful by their strong souls and fierce pride.
On this same canvas embroidered are the essential features of almost 60 years of Revolution that continues to think of a future for the forgotten of the earth. Thus Cuba closes a year, and launches another one glorified by 150 years of a nation painted with liberty and justice, celebrating the unity of its people. (Granma)
