    Elian Gonzalez - Being forcibly removed by Federal Authorities 4/22/00 at 5am    

I am a Cuban American I left Cuba at the age of "5" but I knew then I did not want to live in Cuba.

My parents gave up EVERYTHING to come to this country. They did it for my brother and I so we could have the freedom of speech, which was taken away from us prior to our birth.

My cousin came here at the age of 6 just like Elian. Came alone because my aunt and uncle were not allowed to leave Cuba at that time. Cuba's military age is 15 and from fear of their son being forced to be in the military they sent him to the US alone. My aunt and uncle were not the only one's who went through this sacrifice. Many Cubans had to do the same for their children's freedom.

Elian has requested to remain in the US, is this the way the US protects this child??

I am angry with the US government and I too feel betrayed. This is my way of expressing my anger, and I can only thank GOD that I have the freedom speech today.

I urge the Cuban American Communtity's All over the US to REMEMBER 2 wrongs don't make it right!

Violence will not solve ANYTHING!
