Furthermore, the ending of Lord Of The Flies is quiet ironic as the naval officer who saves them, happens to live in a world filled with defects, all thanks to the human kind that had build it. Yet he is criticizing the boys for almost destroying the whole island. He says"'I should have thought that a pack of British boys... would have been able to put up a better show than that'"(Golding 186). The fact that a whole island was practically annihilated by a single boy who had lost himself in the darkside, shows how how much of a danger our society is in.
As Ralph was alone he thought to himself saying, “But then the fatal unreasoning knowledge came to him again. The breaking of the conch and the deaths of Piggy and simon lay over the island like a vapor...then there was that indefinable connection between himself and Jack, who therefore would never let him alone;never”(184). Ralph now realizes that Jack is going crazy because of all the deaths that took place on the island he seems alone and discomfort.According to the wave document, “ I think the Wave met their need for answers in a fearful situation and it became intrigued by it my self.

He has witnessed with his own eyes the evil that comes about as a result of the lack of civilization and the inborn nature to do evil. Golding describes Ralph’s profound crying simply: “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy” (202). While nearly all the boys on the island ignore those standards British society has taught them, Ralph does not, and, as leader, tries to apply them to society on the island.
Ralph also feels remorse because of his earlier ridicule and humiliation of the boy. The mulberry-marked boy's demise signifies a weakening of the newly formed societal structure on the island and predicts further instability. The sow's death is instrumental in several ways.

His external force is the change in the nature of business: success through reputation no longer holds true, eventually leading to Howard firing Willy. The last element is that Willy died with the fatal event of his suicide due to the fact that he believed it was a last resort towards his dream. Through the use of these characteristic and thematic elements, Miller is able to craft, to an extent, Willy into a tragic hero whose death was the consequence of his delusions of his dream. Willy Loman’s delusional dream continuously brings him into the past because he cannot accept that conditions of his current life. Willy incorrectly thinks that “It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it — because personality always wins the day”, which is absolutely not true and causes him to be a poor role model for his children (Miller 65).
“Moral Injury” can be viewed as a representation of what Tim O’Brien encounters in “The Man I Killed.” What David Linley went through changed his life for the worse. He lost his family and was sent to jail for a condition that fighting for his country graciously gave him PTSD. Everything about war causes destruction in every aspect even hearing an explosion can alter an individual 's brain and this is proven in “The Invisible War On the Brain”.

In these predicaments ,the maze of destruction, known as war is a horrifying atrocity; that afflicts pain and demolishes the lives of the men and women

In the story “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding, he shows how the boys lost all innocence and civilization. The boys went from having innocent child minds to taking lives of other people, acting savage, and losing all civilization due to problems on the island. The boys had forgotten where they came from and became savage in order to survive; it was the need of survival that caused the loss of innocence among the boys. At the end of Lord of the Flies, Ralph weeps “for the end of innocence”. That’s an example that Ralph did indeed recognize that the boys did lose innocence and that he realized this after leaving the monstrous island.
