We may see more Cubans feeling as a result as well as Cubans seeing what democracy looks like. Hopefully falling in love with it and taking back to Cuba to fight for it there. But if you really want Cuba to feel what democracy and freedom looks like, you need to end the Cuban embargo in America that prohibits America and Cuba from having a real relationship. Not just between the two government's, but the people themselves. Cubans coming to America and Americans coming to Cuba. Cubans seeing what freedom and a free press looks like and the ability to live their own lives and be able to speak out even against the government without fear of being thrown in jail for that. And Americans being able to experience another beautiful people, culture, eat good food in a another beautiful Caribbean country like Cuba. There is so much potential for Cuba if their government simply gets out-of-the-way of their own people. And one way to make that happen is for Cuba and America to have an open relationship.
