In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Many years ago, the world was very different from as we know it today. The world was a place of darkness. Yes, people did exist. Animals abounded the land. Mountains, oceans, plants, and flowers were all intact. All living creatures functioned and survived by relying on touch, smell, sound, and because of their lack of sight, imagination. With a world without sight, many of us would be led to believe that the world was quite a boring place to live. This was not so. In fact it was a much more loving and caring society than our present. The reason for this was because no one knew what the two round things between their nose and forehead were used for. Therefore, no one was judged upon their external beauty, color of skin, or ethnicity, as we are today. The world was darkness: no colors were seen. Well, that was until the legend of Angelica, Golden Eye."
