Unforeseen circumstances, Unending possibilities

In the spring of the year 2000, while visiting my alma mater, i met Dr. Alberto Jones. This online journal is not about that first encounter (that was chronicled in an essay i wrote some years ago). This journal is not mine. It has been created, after more than a few conversations with him, to collect - in one place - the many important perspectives and testimonials given to us by Alberto. Thus, this journal is not his; it is humanity's. More specifically, this journal is dedicated and devoted to the countless number of Cuban and other West Indian people who lack not in dignity but do lack a voice to convey their needs with dignity and conviction.

With time, i hope to post as many of Alberto's writings as possible into this place that is - like Alberto - humble and brave, human and unselfish, honest and compassionate.

Un abrazo fuerte pa' todo,
