    I have just completed this short story - http://benblackwell.hubpages.com/hub/The-Young-World

    I asked two people I know to read it, and neither of them understood the connotative meaning of the story.  Can someone give me input please?

    Thanks
    Ben Blackwell

      I read it as children acting out the story of the English invading the US, then at the end some people went to heaven and some didn't. Am I anywhere close?

        Yes, that's the gist of it.  Cool.  Thanks.  I was just making sure it wasn't too obtuse.

          Nope. Picked it up in the second paragraph. The references to physical features and gold etc made it obvious smile

            Ok, thanks.  I just took a look at your profile, by the way, and it looks like you're doing very well for yourself here.  Congratulations.
