Outcomes<br />We in the DR have a lot in common with the Haitians.<br />This was the first time for me to meet people who live close to me and I discovered that we could get along and make friends with each other.<br />The people of the world are equal and we have the same capacity to learn<br />I learned how to live with others without worrying about their race or color.<br />All people are my brothers and sisters<br />Friends are more important than circumstances<br />Race, skin color are not important<br />because in the end all are equal<br />
