    We in the DR have a lot in common with the Haitians.
    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.
    The people of the world are equal and we have the same capacity to learn
    I learned how to live with others without worrying about their race or color.
    All people are my brothers and sisters
    Friends are more important than circumstances
    Race, skin color are not important
    because in the end all are equal
