I sat in the locker room, just one practice in, worn out mentally and physically. At that moment, I pondered the unthinkable - Is basketball no longer my sport? That was unimaginable, as I had loved playing basketball since kindergarten.
Therefore in this particular example Junior demonstrates that his innocence and impressionability motivates him to go against his cultural norms in order to stay away from the pain and misery that he has seen people in Wellpinit drown under.
