The U.S. Embassy in Cuba will raise an American flag outside the building on Friday, marking the official resumption of embassy operations after 54 years. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will attend the ceremony in Havana. He will be the first top-ranking U.S. diplomat to visit the communist country since 1945. Zlatica Hoke reports many Cubans have expressed high hopes about re-establishing ties with the United States.
