Sergio Manuel Rodriguez-Lorenzo on Saturday 3/20/2010 started his Fasting at the Bay of Pigs Cuban Memorial on 8th Street and 13th Avenue.
His brother Rolando Rodriguez is with him making sure he does not go on complete hunger strike.
Today, I received a phone call from Rose Mary Suarez on what was transpiring and her own feelings on what is happening in Cuba.
I went to spend sometime with Sergio and his brother, I asked him, Please do not leave us, think of the most important thing you have, your LIFE!
He asked me to write something simple on my blog so that Yoani Sanchez, The Ladies in White and his friend Guillermo Farinas, know that although he finds himself in the land of the free and the home of the brave. His heart is with them, his heart is with Zapata for they were political and or prisoners of consciousness together. His heart is with all those who lost their life in the Bay of Pigs, were caught and jailed by Castro.
Yes, he wants the support and action from President Obama and his administration on the matter of Cuba and all political prisoners.
He feels that many countries are opening their eyes to what the TRUTH of what has been going on in Cuba for over 50 years.
His respect and admiration for Yoani Sanchez, Claudia Cordero and the Ladies in White.
For all his Cuban brothers and sisters who every single day fight to bring awareness to the cruel practices of the Castro brothers and their secret police.
To bring awareness on the many Castro agents currently in Miami, New Jersey, New York and Washington sent by Castro and Chavez.
I asked him what message do you want to give to President Obama and the World.
"Cuba most open to the World and the World must Open to Cuba"!
"We deserve a country free of the Castros once and for all, we want Democracy y Libertad".
We must stop talking about human rights, we must have ACTION on Human Rights NOW!
We are part of the World and the World is part of the Cuban people, the people that Castro hides from the USA and the International community.
The Eternal Flame is in his Heart and Soul, as it is for so many Cubans on the Island and in Exile. One of these Cubans came all the way from Alaska, Yes a Cuban in Alaska, Rafael C. Herrera, the next one planning to fast to show support for those on hunger strike in Cuba.
Here is my humble observation of all this, Our Journey as Cuban brothers and sisters has been long.
Fate, destiny and life has brought us together for a bigger purpose than any of us would've imagined.
Our purpose is driven by Love, yes LOVE of country, family, freedom, democracy, prosperity and united we will stand up and free our country once and for all! There is no stopping us!
For our human spirit when United as ONE will create the impossible!
Divine Justice will be done!
Love, Light and Peace be with us and humanity.
