To the editor: This is really a shame!

On May 30, 2019, my family and I were aboard the last cruise ship to enter the port of Havana, Cuba. This trip was long awaited for us; we always dreamed of going to Cuba. Growing up in New York in the 1950s we wanted to travel back in time to a place where the cars, culture and people were friendly and appreciative of what they had. Havana lived up to our expectations and much more. The people were great and the culture was so rich in history it reminded me of what we are missing today in our country.

I hope that one day the United States and Cuba will move forward, allowing Americans to travel back to this beautiful place.
