The Castro Revolution may go down in history as one of the most intriguing ever to occur in our world. On Friday, Castro, 90, passed away after more than sixty years ruling Cuba with an iron fist. Castro was well regarded as one of the world's worst dictators, at least, in the eyes of America.  US leader Barack Obama was first among many to respond to the death of Fidel, who was surrounded by his family at the time of his death Friday evening. At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people.
