A little girl lives in the Dominican Republic with her family and her new best friend Liberty during the 1950's, under the reign of a brutal dictator named Rafael Trujillo.
The little girl loved Liberty and they went on adventures every day. One day, however, when she was playing with liberty in the backyard, she spotted to Dominican Republic government men spying on the house. They threatened her and almost killed liberty.
Why are you doing this! Your going to hurt Liberty!
You didn't see us, understand?
The little girl went home to tell her parents of the terrifying encounter. Her parents also seemed frightened by this event. Her father knew it was time for change. It was time to move to America.
Soon after, the father made the decision to flee their home country to America in search of a better life, freedom, and liberty. Mr. Viktor, an American representative, greatly helped the family by getting their visas and helping them to safely travel to their new home. The family was very grateful for his help.
Did you get our visas Mr.Viktor?
Thank you so much for your help!
Yes I did! You can now go to your new home in America in search of a better life with new opportunity!
This news greatly excited the girl. She imagined the two government men coming back and destroying her house, but they would not find her. She would be safe in America. But she came to realize that she could not bring liberty with, because it was illegal. She was inconsolable for this loss.
We are so sorry Mija but this is the way it must be to gain our freedom
When her aunt gave the little girl her admonitions, she was finally able to calm down about her dog. She told her that she would find liberty there, but the little girl suspected that it was a different kind of liberty. But she would be happier and more free in America because liberty would always be with her there.
Thank you! I think i'm really going to like it in America, even without liberty. I will come back to visit him someday.
You're welcome. You will love it in America where you will truly have liberty.
