Children as the source of light

   I feel sad for our poor people; they love me dearly, and they are all
good and kind to me. I wish, papa, they were all free!

Even though she is dying she has such selfless wisdom.  Not only has she completley 100% accepted that fact that she is going to die with gace and dignity but she is so undaunted by her impending death that she is more worried for others who were kind to her in life.  I often take notice as to who is the source of "light in the dark" in a work of literature but there is something powerful when it is a child.  Children can be so effortlessly brilliant in their love for others that they almost seem a natural fight to be the voice of reason or beacon of hope in a work of literature.
