The loss of the innocence can result in a number of ways, whether it be a catastrophe for the character or a renewing experience for the soul. In playwright Conni Massing�s play, �The Aberhart Summer�, written by author Bruce Allen Powe, the characters undergo a change and realization that forever changes their mentality, on an emotional point of view, and their outlook of life.
