During the first meeting the boys decide that they must have a fire in order to signal to passing ships that someone is on the island. Ralph, one of the newly elected leaders on the island states “There’s another thing. We can help them to find us. If a ship comes near the island they may not notice us. So we must make smoke on top of the mountain.

All in all, Burke used tone and narration to help persuade his point that first responders should get a proper recognition at the
Finally freed from the Green Hornet’s “snarl of wires” (125), he immediately started looking his crewmates. “Louie knew that he had to get Phil’s bleeding stopped, but if he went to him, the raft would be lost and all of them would perish” (131), this quote demonstrates that Louie was always looking out for his crew members, and he wanted what was best for them. After Louie, Phil, and Mac had been stranded for a while they had their first attack from the japanese, Louie tried to get Phil and Mac to come under the raft with him, so that they would be safer from the bullets, but it was hard for them to get in and out of the raft. “Louie swam up behind him and gave him a push, and Phil slopped up on board. Mac, too, needed Louie’s help to climb over the wall” (161).
Hurry put out the fire, don’t let it burn to the ground! Or should I say, start that fire let it burn? Fire is not good, but the firemen think it is in Farenheit 451 when they say, “It was a pleasure to burn,” (Bradbury 3). Why name the chapters what they do? Just say chapter one, chapter two, and chapter three, but instead each chapter title has a meaning behind it.
The first example of why being skillful is so important in cases of resilience in Unbroken can be noticed when once the plane crashes into the ocean, Louie immediately puts his wits into action. Highlighted in the text: "Louie knew he had to get Phil 's bleeding stopped, but if he went to him, the raft would be lost and all of them would perish. He swam for the raft" (Hillenbrand 3). Louie backtracked and thought about the situations that could be thrown at him for each movement he made. He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut.

How can we ever be rescued except by luck, if we don 't keep a fire going?” (Golding 80). Ralph has hope that a plane will see the smoke from the fire and they will get rescued.
Ralph, one of the most important characters in the novel serves as the human ego, a subconscious mind that works by reason and common sense. However, even the conscious and reasonable mind can vanish in a society with no structure and civilization. At the beginning of the novel, Ralph asserts “… We can help them to find us… a ship comes near the island they may not notice us…we must make smoke on top of the mountain…” (38).
