Paz Sin Fronteras: A Victory For The Cuban People!

I am sure the critics will say whatever they want of this concert after it is over, there are those who never agreed with the making of this concert in the first place, and will never agree because of the Cuban regimen. However, if you saw the concert online just like I did, you would noticed the happiness and rejoice music brought to the souls of the Cuban people. That is the goal and I believed all those who made Paz Sin Fronteras possible: mission accomplished!

Juanes, Olga Tañon, Miguel Bose, Cucu Diamantes, and all those other courageous artists that showed up to play at La Havana, deserve praise and gratitude. Because they did not let fear intimidate them and despite all , they showed and deliver for the Cuban people.

But most important, I believe in Juanes' lyrics conveyed in his popular song, "It's time to change- El Odio por Amor" is a truism that must be recognized all over the world. No matter social class, race, language, ethnic origin, or anything. It is time for all of us to make this world a better place. Just like Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world."

That change is being made today by the young generation of Cubans and all those around the world. A realization that it is up to us to change the world to something better that we all aspire to live in. According to concert sources, more than a million people showed up to la Plaza de la Revolucion in La Havana to witness these artists. And more than that, they made history for themselves and to demand a better future for themselves from those in power on the island.

This was not Juanes' victory for pulling this out in the face of all controversy, nor the artists that showed up and broadcasted their music to the Cubans and the world, this was a victory for the Cuban people for being present and showing the world that they too can make history. This was the Cuban people's victory!

Que viva Cuba libre!!!
