Consequences for the Cuban Family… the effects were not limited to the economic sphere, since the quality of life of the families was reduced to very low levels of survival. Within the prevailing social climate, there was an increase in social inequality, which contributed to the loss of values, increasing individualism and competition among people and promoting social ills in certain sectors of the population.

Citizen peace, an achievement to be preserved

Cuba is one of the safest countries in the world. This is felt by those who inhabit it and also the millions of tourists who visit it every year.
In any town of the Island you can walk quietly through its streets without fear of being assaulted, or you can enjoy it in a nightclub or another nightclub without the slightest possibility of being surprised by a shooting, however, social indisciplines can tarnish this picture.

Increasingly, public parties and activities are felled by fights and disorders that end in crimes of injuries in many cases, because what could have been a simple disagreement reaches dangerous extremes by the effect of alcoholic beverages.

Almost always young people are involved in these events, even under minors, which should make us reflect on the role that families are playing in the formation and control of their children.

If someone leaves his house with the intention of having fun and contemplates among his clothes a white weapon, an offense punishable severely by the law, he is in fact becoming a transgressor of legality and a potential threat, since he will not hesitate to use it to the slightest annoyance.

Hence the role of parents is essential to persuade them and also that nocturnal facilities adopt the measures they deem appropriate to prevent anyone from carrying an instrument that could become a murder weapon.

It would be advisable for those who alter the order in a discotheque, break a bottle or cause a disturbing incident, be expelled in an exemplary manner and have their identity card written down so that they will not be allowed to enjoy the installation for a long period.

It is not to be expected that the undisciplined will be emboldened and frightened by the rest of society.

The street will always be of the people, of the workers, of the students, who after fulfilling their duties leave in groups or in family to enjoy restaurants, theaters and other social activities conceived for their recreation.

A single fact of physical violence in a bus, a park or a stadium suffices, so that the news can be watered as gunpowder by all the people by the unusual of that type of action in the Cuban society, nevertheless, one alone is sufficient for To put us on the alert and take measures to prevent their proliferation.

That peace that is breathed today in any Cuban neighborhood, marked by solidarity and respect, which is praised by foreigners that travel the country, has to be preserved both day and night, with the support of mass organizations , State institutions and each of the neighbors.

It is not possible to leave only the agents of the order the maintenance of the discipline, since it is impossible to maintain its permanent presence in all the points of a city, but it is necessary to give priority to those spaces more prone to the emergence of quarrels and bad behaviors.

In the heat of a new social situation, some who enjoy greater economic development are accustomed to frequent and speculate on their monetary power in establishments of currency, believing the owners of the place and it is to those precisely those who have to put a stop to their excesses to Do not complicate the life of others.

Citizen tranquility is a conquest that makes us proud and differentiates us from many societies in the world, is the guarantee for the happy growth of our children and the safe work of the whole family, so we must preserve it at all costs.
