   What disturbs me the most about this matter of sending the
boy back to Cuba is a recent poll in which a majority of people
favored sending him back.

    It saddly appears that this majority has lost their historical
bearings relative to what it means to live under a communist
dictatorship as Castro's Cuba where children are the "property
of the state" and subject to denial of the human freedoms fully
enjoyed by their peers outside of the communist state.

     The folks who argue for the father's right to have Elian
returned to him don't evidently ask the rhetorical question,
"If the father loves his son so much how can he want his son to
live in the deplorable conditions imposed by Castro and his communist
state?"  Especially when his son could enjoy the freedom here with the
loving care of relatives.
