Some people may thought that I am crazy if they know that I had shed tears when he was removed. I felt as if I lost my uncle. I had also just lost my father at that time.

Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly. John F. Kennedy

I salute you and admire you Mr Castro. You became a great leader because of that kind of courage. Just read this letter –
A letter written by the 14-year-old Castro to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, expressing admiration and asking for a $10 bill. In the letter Castro claims to be “twelve years old” and writes, “If you like, give me a t…en dollar bill green American, because never, I have not seen a ten dollar bill,” signing the letter, “Thank you very much. Good by [sic]. [But I like you more because you dare to write although your English was not perfect.]

Your friend,

Fidel Castro.”  (Source Wikipedia)
