Cubans have lived many sad moments. Before the triumph of the Cuban Revolution on January, 1959, Cuba was a colony of Spain first, and neo-colony of the United States, later.
At that time, there were atrocities and abuses against children, and crimes were part of everyday life.
After the revolutionary victory, the people's dream was fulfilled. The guerrillas were able to fight, to overcome obstacles, following their desire for independence.
A new process would begin in the archipelago.
Another power did not adapted to the blunt failure suffered in our country and began, loudly, several maneuvers to disrupt public peace and the Revolution.
No matter the consequences, there were many actions against these people who just wanted to emancipate and build a country without impositions.
Victims of so fierce retaliation have been several. On April 13, 1961 Fe del Valle died, one of the victims of imperialism, in its thirst for blood.
A hard-working woman, who was born in Villa Clara Province put out her life in the sabotage of the store El Encanto.
Fe, integrated into the revolutionary process, belonged to the Territorial Troop Militia (MTT), and maintained an attitude above reproach in her conduct as a worker.
In a letter to his daughter she said:
"Certainly all those wonders can not be achieved without great effort on the part of the people and Che explained it well in a recent hearing in which he said that this is a fight with our enemies and we must be prepared for everything. " That sad April 13, Fe was in the store when the fire was detected. When his colleagues realized that she was not there, they searched without results, until they found her remains on fire. Again the terrorist acts of the United States claim innocent lives, and the Cubans show their rejection and decision to go ahead with the socialist way.
