Good message

Two girls grow up divided by a fence. Each girl is instructed by her family not to go to the other side. They end up side stepping the rule by sitting on the bench together and in this manner they become close friends. Soon other friends begin to sit on the fence. At the end of the stories, the girls agree that someday the fence will fall down.
