“I could not tell you how or when I ceased to be a communist, but America made me see—grudgingly—that I had been wrong. One day I came to realize that when I stepped into this land, I indeed breathed the fresh air of true freedom. At first I denied it internally, but I soon began to question my long-held beliefs and enjoy my life in America. Eventually, I renounced the fake promises and the great lie of socialism, to my father’s great displeasure.” Ismael’s return to Puerto Rico for a visit was an emotional and important event in his life. “I tried to communicate to my father that I was having second thoughts. I was still in transition, but he would have none of it. It became increasingly difficult for us to talk about politics, and I simply let it rest.”FVInsitiute.org
