In this perspective, understanding the subjective human issues is significant for individuals, and even for the group in General. These actions are presented with a way to assign value to social ties present in the living, and that manifest themselves in the neighbourly relations, on coexistence in the squares, groves, fairs, and such attitudes strengthen the bonds of friendship and brings to memory the memories of the past that certainly has a lot of value to life in society.
