Ignorance is Bliss

This piece is about childhood innocence. I am connecting the ideas of innocence and ignorance with each other, because they both are involved in not knowing certain things. Ignorance is usually seen as a negative trait, but I think it has its positive qualities. Children are ignorant of the real adult world of work, stress, finances, and responsibility. Instead, children live in the magical world of joy, unicorns, princesses and dinosaurs- but this is not a bad thing.
