The Giver: Chapters 1-3

Theme
Growing up comes with big responsibilities.
Order creates simplicity.

Object of importance
I think that his eyes are an important part of the story.  I think this because most people have dark eyes, where Jonas and Gabe have light, grayish eyes.  I think that his eyes have something to do with the apple too, though. I predict that this will have something to do with his Assignment now that he will be turning into a Twelve.
Quote
About the cargo planes... "Occasionally, when supplies were delivered by cargo planes to the landing field across the river, the children rode their bicycles to the riverbank and watched, intrigued, the unloading and then takeoff directed to the west, always away from the community."

"He had never seen an aircraft so close, for it was against the rules for pilots to fly over the community."

I found these quotes on the first page and I think it shows hat his community tries to be very safe. Bikes seem very popular in the community and i wonder if they have something strange with motors because they don't seem to have any cars or motorcycles and they don't see planes a lot.
