Suggested reading: Pedro Pan parents sought to protect their children from the militarization of Cuba's youth, which was in effect an integral part of the emerging revolutionary political culture from 1959 onwards.

Suggested reading: What Pedro Pan parents feared most some 50 years ago did come to fruition. It was in fact the creation of the Circulos Infantiles in 1960 that in large part gave rise to the so-called Patria Potestad rumors.

Video: Primary education in Cuba serves as an instrument of political and ideological intolerance. Some 50 years later the Cuban government continues to implement an educational policy aimed at brainwashing young children with intimidation tactics. http://youtu.be/wlf_MniRuU8

I dedicate this video entitled "Tributo a Papá" to all the Pedro Pan children whose fathers were either executed or sent to Cuba's political prisons by the Castro regime, so that we never forget the "real" reasons why our parents made the difficult decision of sending us abroad some 50 years ago.

Pedro Pan "James" Portela passed away. Does anyone remember him? He is not in the Miami Herald's Pedro Pan database. His obituary reads: "James Portela, 66, of Madison,[Va], formerly of Haymarket, passed away on Friday, January 14, 2011. He was born in Havana, Cuba on Sept. 29, 1944 to the late Oscar and Lydia Portela (Crespo). In the early sixties he came to Miami through the Operation Pedro Pan. There he finished high school and later went to Texas to attend St. Edwards University. In 1963 he came to Northern Virginia. Jimmy later went to work for Dewberry & Davis. He began as a land surveyor and worked his way up to a project manager and supervisor in over 30 years with the company. He later worked for Bowman Consulting and the Engineering Groupe before retiring two years ago..."

Muchas gracias, Jose Antonio, por el reportaje sobre mi tio-abuelo, Segundo Sera y Serrano. Me da mucho orgullo ser parte de una familia que tanto lucho por la libertad de Cuba y luego por el bienestar de los cubanos. Dios quiera que vuelva a ser una realidad.
