"There's political support for this educational strategy. It's the best thing that's happened to us.... [Raul Castro] is helping us a lot ... not only because I'm his daughter, but because I've earned his respect by working at my job carefully.... We don't know how the public will react. We suppose it'll go well because of the way we've organized it. It'll help people understand things, reflect and think."
