Gloria Estefan Pens POWERFUL Statement Following Fidel Castro's Death


Not all death is mourned.

Legendary singer Gloria Estefan is reacting to the news of Fidel Castro's death with a very powerful statement via her Instagram.

Gloria's family fled Cuba over 50 years ago, following Castro's rise to power, and she was only a small child when they arrived in the US.

In a lengthy English and Spanish Instagram post, Gloria said:

Although the death of a human being is rarely cause for celebration, it is the symbolic death of the destructive ideologies that he espoused that, I believe, is filling the Cuban exile community with renewed hope and a relief that has been long in coming. And although the grip of Castro's regime will not loosen overnight, the demise of a leader that oversaw the annihilation of those with an opposing view, the indiscriminate jailing of innocents, the separation of families, the censure of his people's freedom to speak, state sanctioned terrorism and the economic destruction of a once thriving & successful country, can only lead to positive change for the Cuban people and our world. May freedom continue to ring in the United States, my beautiful adopted country, and may the hope for freedom be inspired and renewed in the heart of every Cuban in my homeland and throughout the world. 馃嚚馃嚭馃嚭馃嚫 Aunque la muerte de un ser humano es raramente causa para celebrar, es la muerte simb贸lica de las ideolog铆as destructivas que el patrocin贸 que, en mi opini贸n, est谩n llenando al exilio Cubano de esperanza renovada y un alivio que ha tardado mucho en llegar. Y aunque el agarre del r茅gimen Castrista no se aflojara de un d铆a para otro, el deceso de un l铆der que supervis贸 el aniquilamiento de aquellos con puntos de vistas opuestos al suyo, el encarcelamiento de inocentes, la separaci贸n de familias, la censura de la libertad de expresi贸n, el esparcimiento de terrorismo sancionado por su gobierno y la destrucci贸n econ贸mica de un pa铆s exitoso que prosperaba, solo puede llevar a cambios positivos para el pueblo Cubano y el mundo. Que la libertad siga viva en los Estados Unidos, mi bello pa铆s adoptivo, y que la esperanza para la libertad crezca y se renueve en los corazones de cada Cubano en mi tierra natal y a trav茅s del mundo.馃嚚馃嚭馃嚭馃嚫
