An extremely sad one.

Handsome young man...pity we lost him. I was one of those who believed he belonged with his remaining parent, UNTIL I was given all the facts.

Sad, indeed, Paco.

Knowing the hellhole that made his mother willing to risk everything to get here was proof enough he should remain with his other family members. The father's actions demonstrated him to be someone wishing to cash-in, rather than those of a loving parent.The look on Elian's face every time he was threatened with removal spoke volumes.

This was one of the saddest moments in US history.

The saddest part is, Elian's mother died for nothing.

Sadly, RebeccaH, you are right. It seems that there is no possibility of Elian having an epiphany.

Have to say like prairiecat, did not know all the details, so thank you for that information, and it is really a very sad story.
