"In today's story, Empress Nadia learned that prejudice can be very damaging. She felt that Fuzz and I were nothing more than aliens, until she discovered that when someone helps you, it doesn't matter what color his or her skin is. People may look different on the surface, they can even dress or talk differently. But underneath all those surface things, people are more like than they are different. So remember: The best way to make good friends is to find the ways in which you are like."
