A tribute to miners and the British Miners' Strike of
Life can be perfect in the created world of a naive child until one day a major event or revelation occurs and ushers in a bitter reality, a lesson in life. Oblivious and unwilling to accept the truth when it is spoken by an adult, children often have to experience life lessons first hand in order to learn from them, even when they are painful.
Each child will experience a troublesome revelation during a single moment in time which will bring about a loss of innocence and transport them into the reality of adulthood.
Rosary is a very smart little girl, one tot the top in her class. She falls to see the social class structure that separates her from Lucian, even when her mother reminds her of Its existence.

Soon after being greeted. Rosary is assigned special tasks to perform at the party. Young Rosary believes she is the only one asked to perform such important chores because she is a special girl who has been assigned a special status.
At the end of the party, all the guests receive gifts on their way out. Rosary has been watching all the other little boys and girls receive their gifts as they leave and has decided she really wants a you-you instead of a racquet.
She is offered two dollars for helping at the party. It turns out she was invited to serve the other children and all those special chores were not so special after all. Her dreams of being perceived as an equal are shattered and the bitter reality of her destiny are realized.
She knows the history of the story like the palm of her hand. Yet, the prettiest girl In her class got the part Instead of her.
The teacher said Helen fit ten part. Since Vita feels she can no longer talk to her mother, she writes letters to her absent father. She burns the letters in an attempt to make certain things happen in her life.
She made an appeal to the gods. Ultimately, she gets the part of Helen of Troy, her mother leaves Old Farrell, and the stage is set for her father to return. In this moment she has a revelation.
The reality that her father is not coming home to see her has finally struck her. During the last line of the play, Vita does not perform it as rehearsed. This is her moment to say goodbye to a father who will never return home.
Although both girls learn painful lessons on life through a single event, there are still some differences between their experiences.
They happened by chance. She finally accepts that her father is not coming back and there s nothing she can do about it. She has discovered that adults do not always make the right decisions, even the ones who are supposed to love and protect you. She discovers that being intelligent and associating with other children of higher social order does not shield her from class discrimination.
Unfortunately, we do not know if Rosary accepts the money and whether she will find closure in acceptance of her status or if she will rise up and overcome such discrimination. There is no doubt these two children have been robbed a certain piece of their childhood innocence.
Even if one child finds closure and the other does not, both lessons are upsetting enough to leave a lasting impression on them for the rest of their lives. A process all too many of us wish we could reverse because reality is not always kind or forgiving.2 UNCG Undergraduate Bulletin 4 Notices Equality of Educational Opportunity The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is com-mitted to equality of educational opportunity and does not.
