He became what is known as an “elangomat,” or the person who leads us through our ordeal. Robert was evidently new to his job, as he was extremely nervous and clearly had stage fright.

    ”After Twelve, age isn’t important. Most of us even lose track of how old we are...What’s important is the preparation for adult life and the training you’ll receive.” This quote is from the book, The Giver, and even though it was said in a fictional world where everything is always perfect, it still can relate a great deal to reality. We might not lose track of how we are, or agree that age is not important after twelve, but it is important to be prepared for adulthood. Everyone needs good…
