The story “The Other Side” is about two girls who are two different races. The two girls are next door neighbors, but in that time black and whites could not be together so there was a giant fence that separated the two girls. Then one day the black girl ran up to the white girl and said hi. Then they started to hang out. Eventually they became friends.
When I reread “The Other Side,” I thought it was all about friendship. In the story the two girls wanted to be friends, but they couldn't be friends because they were two different races. Also, when one of the girls was playing jump rope, the white girl came to play, but the black girl’s friend rejected the white girl's friendship. In the end, the girls became friends. In the story I learned a message: In life it doesn’t matter who you are, but you can always make friends.
This story relates to my life when I was in kindergarten. Back when I was five, I had no friends. Then I met a kid named Vicente. We were both different in many ways, but just like the two girls, we became friends.
So if there is someone that you don’t like, who knows, you might like him/her. So what are you waiting for, go talk to him/her!
