If I were not Cuban, how many things I would have lost, how much Creole substance, how much laughter and handshakes.

If the stork had thrown me in other latitudes, I would not have grown up with the doors of my house always open in the middle of a rural, quiet and picturesque neighborhood.

I would not have graduated from college without paying a penny.

I would be missing the pictures next to Jose Marti at school, the memory of the  parents tying blue or red scarves around their young childrens necks the euphoria of the neighbourhood after the Stevenson’s fulminating knockout on the prominent and squarejaw yankee Duanne Bobbick, who was nicknamed “The withe hope” and, hope at last, it was eaten by the goat.

If I were not Cuban, I would have ignored the collective joy that is woven around a large pot full of broth in the middle of the street.

I would not know the clatter of dominoes under an almond tree, nor would I have memories of the “Buey Cansao” of the Van Van, the “Nueva Trova”, Palmas y cañas” or even the meteorological statement of Dr. José Rubiera, known in my town as the Hurricane Hunter

If I were not Cuban I would not have applauded Fidel whenever the carapacho sounded to the characters from the North, I would never have premiered a guayabera and probably did not know anything about the ball, staying out of the crowd when Antonio Muñoz the ball burst and Bobby Salamanca shouted at the top of his lungs: “Goodbye, Lolita of my life.” I would not know the congrí, nor the pig roasted in a plectrum.

If I were not Cuban, I could get up early and not drink coffee, I would always speak softly, I would not joke in the most unexpected places, I would not engage in improvised conversations with any stranger at the bus stop, I would not ask the neighbors for salt, I would not donate blood voluntarily, I would know a little less solidarity, I would not go to hospitals for free, I would not have children protected by free vaccines, I would not pay attention to the Virgin of Charity, to the stamps of San Lazaro or to the offerings left in the trunks of the ceibas.

I would ignore the joy to make a constitution and have the right to vote for it, and above all and live in people strongher tha a twister.

I would never have learn than you van live with less but with more pride, that you can block anything but the smile and the desire to live witout pride.

Cuba”s President Miguel Diaz-Canel denounced Saturday attempts to impose the Cuban Medical Parole Program, established by the U.S. government of George W. Bush (2001-2009) and repealed by that of Barack Obama (2009-2017).

‘They are trying to impose a perverse resource to stimulate brain drain. One more anti-Cuban campaign, which reveals imperial impotence in the face of revolutionary conquests. Its promoters cannot favor a civilized relationship, they are blinded by the arrogance #SomosCuba’, wrote the Head of State in his Twitter @DiazCanelB.

#TuesdayMotivations – Therapeutic clowns & The Healing Power of Laughter / #Cuba

“Cuba has a clown academy, located in the eastern province of Las Tunas, where graduates are trained in the art form, and the inclusion of a therapeutic module has already been proposed. We formed after the Canadian, Joan Barrington, director of Therapeutic Clowns International, visited us in 2012, taught a course, and trained several instructors. Subsequently, they have been responsible for multiplying this knowledge throughout the country, supported by the Cuban Ministry of Public Health”

Sparking a good laugh and shaking off sadness is the greatest desire of therapeutic clowns, people of great human sensitivity who build relationships of complicity and affection with long-stay hospital patients, as MSc Aniet Venereo Pérez-Castro, otherwise known as the clown Celeste, explained to Granma International.

She defined therapeutic clowns as people who don the representative red nose and provide moments of amusement and relaxation for those suffering from chronic conditions.

Professionals from different specialties such as doctors, rehabilitation, psychologists, artists and others volunteer their time and talent in this effort to provide patients with necessary hope, which can contribute to their rapid recovery. They also visit nursing homes, psychiatric hospitals, psycho-pedagogical centers, and institutions for adults with chronic diseases.

#Cubandoctors in #Brazil: How can conditions be placed on lives? – Via Granma #Cuba

f0023669.jpg

Boticario is a town lost in the vast northeast of Brazil, in the municipality of

Santo Amaro de Brotas, close to the Aracaju coast in the State of Sergipe, more than 1,600 kilometers from the capital, Brasilia.

It is hard to say if the President-elect of the country, Jair Bolsonaro, has been here, or if he knows where this town is located on the map. It is even more unlikely that he knows the story of María, a humble, young woman, 29 years of age, to whom a Cuban doctor provided relief.

#WednesdayMotivation #MustRead – An Open letter from a #CubanDoctor to Jair Bolsonaro / Via Cubadebate + Islamia Blog from Nocaute

yonner gonzález infante

Automatically Translate From the originals Cubadebate Islamia Nocaute

Bolsonaro said: “Currently, Cuba gets most of the salary of Cuban doctors and restricts the freedom of those professionals and their families, they are withdrawing from More Doctors for not accepting to review this absurd situation that violates human rights, regrettable!

I answer: Bolsonaro, my son, when you Mr. says that Cuba keeps my salary, I only think about the following questions:

  1. I accepted the terms of this contract for free and personal determination.
  2. Aware that with that money, my mother, brothers, nephews, cousins, uncles, neighbors, my whole family, is guaranteed the care of their health without paying anything.
  3. Aware that my training as a doctor is thanks to the creation of public universities throughout the national territory. Where the children of bricklayers, lawyers, peasants, service and post employees, doctors, etc., share the same classroom without discrimination based on sex, color, ideology or wealth. That, Bolsonaro, is called equality. Which you do not know, because it does not exist in a country where corruption and political privileges end with the wealth of Brazil.
  4. I have the courage to work for the Brazilian people even without receiving the salary you are talking about. Because I do not work just for an economic issue. I work because I like my profession, because I have never tried to make myself rich at the expense of the poor. Because I will never use politics as a way of life. Because I will never deceive the poor with false promises. Because I’m never going to plant hatred and discrimination in anyone’s heart. Because I’m going to think things through before I talk so I do not have to do like you (who apologizes every day for the follies he talks about).
  5. Yes, I can bring someone from my family, but I do not bring it because, Mr. Bolsonaro, the poor have to have priorities in life and for me the priority is to help my family, even more than buying an air ticket knowing that in home we have other needs and priorities.
  6. I also know that you have the support of a small number of my colleagues who, for political and economic reasons, believe that it is better to enrich oneself with money and not with love, experience, moral values, patriotism, dignity. Because I can not agree with my salary there in Cuba. I may not even agree with the political system in Cuba. But I do not have to defame my country either. I saw that also in poor Brazilians, mostly in Brazil. They like Brazil, that small town where they were born, only they would certainly like that same Brazil they have in their hearts to have equality, zero poverty, zero hunger, zero discrimination, zero violence, zero corruption, health and quality education. But still, in imperfect Brazil, they like their country.
  7. Mr. says that Cubans “are withdrawing from the Más Médicos program for not accepting to review this absurd situation that violates human rights.” No Bolsonaro, what really violates human rights is to deprive the poor of Brazil of access to health for not agreeing with other political ideologies. Because you want to change the rules without asking the beneficiaries of the program if the Cubans really do the job the way it has to be. Because here, in Brazil, we have Brazilian preceptors, we are doing a course in family medicine, all under the supervision of excellent Brazilian professionals. We are not here in any corner doing things on a whim, no. Now he comes to say that we are disguised as doctors. Here the only one disguised is the Lord and all those who support his absurd vision of reality. Mr. is only fighting for the privileges of the medical class, of the political class. Regrettable! Yes, Mr. Bolsonaro, what is regrettable is to see how a guy without knowledge of anything, only weapons, gets elected president. And even more regrettable was to see how some poor people voted for you. God take account of the poor. God takes account of Brazil.
  8. Who studied in the age of books, who studied at the time that research was done in books and not through Google or the Internet, deserves respect. Who fought for life and cried for the death of a person or a child deserves respect. Who was there, where for many is the end of the world, to take care of the sick, deserves respect. Whoever stayed away from his family to smile back at an old man or a child deserves respect. Is not it to take off your hat? It is absurd that 66 countries in the world are benefiting from our work and you come to say that we disguise ourselves as doctors. Even worse is to doubt that anyone wants to be served by Cubans.

I ask for respect for my colleagues.

I ask respect for the free choice of my people.

I ask respect from the poor and ignorant.

I ask for respect for public medicine.

I also ask you to study what it means to love one’s neighbor.

What Homeland means

What dignity means

What diplomacy means

What family medicine means

What equality means

Which means respect of thought.

What it means to be also the president of the poor Brazilians and not just that of the rich and powerful.

Health and long life for you Mr.

God bless you and your people.
