"Thank you so much for having me here today, and thank you so much for doing this convention here in Florida.
Before I begin, this is such an important night for my country. I want to begin -- with your permission -- 80 seconds, to talk about another country. A country located just a few hundred miles away from this city, the country of my parents birth.
There is no freedom or liberty in Cuba, and tonight, I ask for your prayers that soon freedom and liberty will be there as well."
