OBAMA VISITS CASTRO'S CUBA.
Icheoku says this symbolic reaching out of hand of friendship and fellowship by President Barack Obama of America to Raul Castro's Cuba, is highly commendable. Icheoku hopes it will finally pave the way and be the igniting device for more things to come between the Island nation and the United States of America.
Two memorable quotes by the two leaders:-
"America believes in democracy. We believe that freedom of speech and freedom of assembly and freedom of religion are not just American values but are universal values." - President Barack Obama.
"Tell me now. What political prisoners? Give me a name, or the names and if there are these political prisoners they will be free before nightfall." - President Raul Castro.
Icheoku wishes both countries well and prays for such mending of fences throughout the world. Iran is thawing, Cuba is on course and soon may be North Korea? Why not, since it costs less to live in peace than it costs to live edgily trigger-ready.
