History and free people remember well those willing to lay down their life to fight for freedom. That fight can take many forms and can inspire others to join in the fight.

Cubans may one day honor independent reporter Dr. Guillermo Farinas for his brave stand for internet freedom.

"Cuban Dying for Internet Freedom"

Excerpts:

"A Cuban journalist and champion of freedom of information is on the verge of death as he protests the Castro government's refusal to allow him and his fellow Cubans to access the Internet."

""In the United States access to the Internet is as simple as drinking a glass of water," wrote Carballo in an e-mail to NewsMax.com. "In Cuba even something so simple is denied to the population. Freedom of information is forbidden.""
