[tab id=1]I live in a country with a new name.
We are not blind to color,
but we simply embrace each other’s values.
And accept,
that we are not the same.

We celebrate our differences.
We each have a different name, and we
speak so many languages. We
should learn from one another.

The landscapes and breathtaking beaches,
they grip our attention so naturally.
Even the weather we find appealing.

My country is no Wonderland,
but I know what it can be.[/tab]
