  • This in my opinion is a call to service, and one of the reasons my aunt believes that Cuba remains blessed. The creator no matter what name you call him/her by..Asks all of us to sacrifice..To who much is given much is required
    We have a doctors, lawyers nurses engineers etc in the Villamil family who has answered this call on numerous occassions..
    In america there is an adage that we all have heard and really believe it should apply to Cuba as well

    ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU..ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY
