U.S. flag raising in Havana reveals old wounds run deep

Cuban and U.S. flags hang from a resident's balcony on the day the U.S. opened its embassy in Havana, Cuba, Friday, Aug. 14, 2015. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Cuban counterpart Bruno Rodriguez said their nations would continue to disagree over issues such as democracy and human rights. But they also said they hoped to make progress on issues ranging from maritime security and public health to the billions of dollars in dueling claims over confiscation of U.S. property and the U.S. economic embargo on the island. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)It may have been 54 years since the American flag was last seen waving above the U.S. embassy in Havana, but mixed reactions to Friday’s flag-raising ceremony revealed that the scars of Cuba’s brutal past run deep — and won’t heal overnight.
