Fidel Castro, who ruled the Caribbean island nation of Cuba for almost 50 years, died last Friday at the age of 90. His brother Raul who took over the country in 2008 made the announcement。The leader of the Cuban revolution in 1959, Fidel Castro rose, made Cuba the first communist nation in the Western Hemisphere. His admirers remembered him as a great leader.But his critics remembered him as an enemy of human rights.
The students in the University of Havana were holding vigils and yelling"Fidel!Fidel!"And these students,although they were born much after the revolution,are very passionate about Fidel Castro and his causes.But in Little Havana,there were literally hundreds of people celebrating the death of Fidel Castro. It's very kind of dark to think that people are celebrating someone's death, but people that I have spoken here say this has been something that they have been waiting for, for a very long time. They also regard the death of Castro as a new chapter for the island of Cuba.
In a word,the divisive views of Castro and his authoritarian rule are embodied by these very different types of gatherings.In my own view,Castro is a lengendary people.Because it's said he eluded about 638 times assassinations from CIA in his life!At the same time, many people regard him as a tyrant.But nobody's perfect.We can't deny that he is a great leader and reformer.
