Alan Gross is from Maryland near Washington, DC. He has not harmed anyone or sought to harm anyone. His career indicates that he has helped many people around the world and has a strong connection to the Jewish Community in Washington. He is not a threat to anyone or a terrorist. He has been given a severe sentence without regard for his lifetime record off impressive service to many communities. He has been in prison for two and half years. Every week people in Washington gather to protest outside the Cuban Interests Intersection. Alan Gross' punishment is cruel and excessive. His family includes those who are seriously ill. It would seem that an American citizen would be given greater support through the protection of the United States Government. I admire that Israel valued the single life of Gilad Shalit enough to never give up in its negotiations for his release. I hope that the US Government can learn a lesson from Israel that this good citizen of America will not be forgotten, by extending its protection to him and by bringing him back to the United States without delay. Cuba's doctors say that his physical health is normal. I hope that it is true. Cuba's refusal to work out an agreement for his release is hurting Cuba both in America and around the world.
