"A child is born with no state of mind
Blind to the ways of mankind"- Grand Master Flash:The Message
This quote is not really related to the main character But it is more or less related to all the kids who get raised up not knowing that what is going on in the book we are reading "Along Way Gone" that this is actually happening every day villages getting taken over, people killed, whole villages in poverty, we have hid this from them but if we were to tell them at a younger age they might just help to do something about join together and change the world little by little.
"I can't walk through the park, cause it's crazy after dark"- Grand Master Flash:The Message
This relates not only to the main character in the book but to the whole village and how they can't go any where without the fear of being captured or killed or something worse.
