Where would you go? How would you get there? Would you risk death waiting to escape legally? How would you want to be treated when you arrived at your safe destination? What would you tell your children?

I had to do just that, I was born in Cuba, came here with my parents at the onset of Castro's regime, I was 9 years old and not much was explained to me, but we left in a hurry and in a hush hush mode, my father was in the military of Batista. We arrived in Miami, in 1960, and adapted well, most children will adapt well at this age. I have seen many families risk death in the Florida straits fleeing this oppressive regime, some have made it and there are a lot of those who haven't. Sadly enough the regime has made families split as a punishment for fleeing, I myself have family there whom I have never met.

We would likely go to Ireland. My husband and kids have dual citizenship and carry both USA and EU passports.
