what seems to be the novel's message about innocence

What are the different symbols of innocence?

How do we know that Johnny was still "gold" to the end of his life?

You need to submit your questions one at a time. I think that the book really speaks to loss of innocence. The characters, some more than others, lose their innocence. Johnny and Pony must contend with the harsher realities of their world. When Johnny dies, Dally loses what little sense of innocence he had left.
