Feliz Cumpleaños a José Martí, born on January 28, 1853. He became a poet, essayist, political theorist, etc. etc. He wrote numerous works, generally about politics, revolution, peaceful takeover. His quotes are profound and widely known.
I always find it interesting how many governments and people have revered him for the past century. For example, he was revered by various Cuban governments, including the current government. The people of Cuba, then and now, also revered him, even if they are not pro-government. Isn’t it interesting that governments and their opponents would both honor the same person?
One of these days, I’m going to finish my research and write something about this interesting man, including his connection to Ocala, Florida, Tampa, Florida and other places in the United States.
