CUBA, NOVEMBER 28, 2016: Children pay their last respects to Cuban revolutionary icon Fidel Castro in Bayamo, Granma province. A historic figure of the 20th century who beat the odds to endure into the 21st, Castro died late Friday after surviving 11 US administrations and hundreds of assassination attempts. No cause of death was given. Castro's ashes will go on a four-day island-wide procession starting Wednesday before being buried in the southeastern city of Santiago de Cuba on December 4. ***** This is the Hour of Lead – Remembered, if outlived, As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow – First – Chill – then Stupor – then the letting go (Emily Dickenson) *****
