I wrote this with a specific time/location in mind. A specific time in my life when I literally participated in group translation. HOWEVER looking at a bigger picture isn't that just a example of life? We look towards others examples to get an idea of an outcome. We look towards other, or better Upwards to find guidance and explain situations in a way we understand.
ANYWAYS...whatever the lesson you may get from it, it is still a good story and an interesting experience.
