When he was flying over the clouds, all he would think about was how amazing our world is, there is no way there cannot be a G-d who created it . A few weeks after my teacher told us this story I went on an air plane to Florida. I was sitting by the window, looking out at the clouds; at this moment, all I could think about was the story that Rabbi Goldmintz told us in class. It amazed me how I have been on air planes before and looked outside at the clouds in amazement, but never thought about who made the clouds. All I could think about was “מָה-רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ ה.” Whenever I go on family trips I am always amazed by the nature of the world around us.

The economic backgrounds of the characters impact the social structure the boys try to establish. The boys are all on a private airplane with very few “grownups”(Golding 8) possibly being evacuated as some metropolitan children were in the London Blitz during the war in 1940-41 (teachrobb.com). After their plane crashes, Ralph states that, “Perhaps there aren’t any grownups anywhere”(Golding 8). The boys come from parents who have money enough to send them away on their own for a while. Parents, like Ralph’s father who is “a commander in the Navy,” who are responsible and respectable and are trying to raise boys who are the same(13).

Growing up in a small, middle class town in the midwest left little cultural diversity surrounding me as a young child. Me and all of my friends seemed to be cut from the same material. For the most part, we all had two loving, caring parents, we often times did not struggle for items necessary to live, and we often times were never introduced to people much different than us. It can be quite easy to say the midwest is the worst place to raise an open minded child; that being said, I believe my first two hours in Germany opened my eyes more than anything else I have gone through in my entire life. A jumbo jetliner went soaring through the sky, reaching upwards of 570 miles per hour.
