“So far I have mostly shared my personal experiences apart from my comments, feelings or political ideas with the people whom I talked to. The unique notion that can summarize what I have told to the ones whom I shared my experiences could be ‘touching’. The prejudices that prevent the communication in the first phases, slowly fades away as long as you are together, you bring out something with collaboration and talk with each other. It was of course faster with children. Therefore, I summarize my ideas to the people and tell them to communicate without any reservation and collaborate and bring out something together.”
