Reaching for Cuban Glory

Cubans are extremely patriotic and for me this image captures the daily efforts of many in the country to reach for, attain, and come to terms with what it means to be Cuban. Cuba is living a very exciting moment now and this picture, showing an angel on top of the Gran Teatro de La Habana "reaching" for the Cuban flag in the distance, captures part of the Cuban spirit that will not subside as the country welcomes normalized relations with the US government and Americans in general.
