Holy moly this is HUGE news!

President Barack Obama announced to the world that the United States would be opening full diplomatic relations with Cuba!

Not only this, but the U.S. will be opening up an embassy in Havana for the first time in more than half-a-century!

In addition to these two things, Cuba has released an American contractor, Alan Gross, who has been held in a Cuban prison for five whole years AND both the United States AND Cuba released political prisoners, some which were held for up to 20 years, back to their own countries.
