Message from Pedro Pan Eloísa Echazábal. Below the link to the Miami Dade College announcement dated July 8th regarding the upcoming Freedom Tower exhibit about the Cuban exile experience. This exhibit will be launched in mid-September. The first exile focus will be on the Pedro Pan exodus. Most of us who reunited with our parents in Miami remember visiting the Freedom Tower for the services the U.S. government made available to the newly arriving Cuban exiles. The Pedro Pan exhibit will last about two years. Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company invited me to collaborate with them when the plans were first developed about two years ago, and I was ecstatic with the opportunity. Also collaborating with their memorabilia and photos are Operation Pedro Pan Group Inc.organization, Barry University Archives and Special Collections, University of Miami Cuban Heritage Collection and Florida International University Libraries. As soon as the next official announcement comes out, I will forward. In the meantime, I would like to let you know that a "collecting day" is being planned for Saturday, July 26th, from 12 to 4 p.m. at the Freedom Tower. This is the day when Pedro Pans will have the opportunity to bring memorabilia regarding our Pedro Pan days to be loaned to the exhibit. Required receipts and documentation will be available there. Courtesy parking on the open lot across the street south of the Tower. Entrance on N.E. 5th street. Just let the attendant know you are coming to the Tower to bring your items. This is a great opportunity to showcase our experience. Again, as additional announcements are released, I'll forward.

Dearest Willie: You are the most outstanding human being I are so good that you could be a dog. Your capacity for forgiveness and understanding supercedes that of any Nobel Peace Prize recipient. Everyone should follow your example. Yes, Willie, it is all about you, and you, and you!

To whom it may concern. This is my contribution to the peace efforts on this site. I would like to dedicate this song by Queen to all of those who are always trash talking all the Cubans in Miami to the Pedro Pan Administrator. Buddy you are a boy make a big noise Playing in the street gonna be a big man some day You got mud on your face You big disgrace Kicking your can all over the place We will we will rock you We will we will rock you Buddy you are a young man hard man Shouting in the street gonna take on the world some day You got blood on your face You big disgrace Waving your banner all over the place We will we will rock you We will we will rock you Buddy you are an old man poor man Pleading with your eyes gonna make you some peace some day You got mud on your face You big disgrace Somebody better put you back in your place We will we will rock you We will we will rock you
