Part 4, The need for retrieval of the consciousness

To end up fighting for children´s rights was an awakening since I had resided as a good dog within the bubble of entertainment believing that a meaningful experience was directed towards something positive and where my wheeling of the narrative vehicle differed from the opposite which could be seen in the absence of a reciprocally shared goal where expectations by a “we”, based on preconceptions, considered to know what was best for others.
