Color

Colors make this world a better place. They add brightness, difference and happiness. Everyone takes colors for granted because colors are part of our world and there’s no way we couldn’t have them, but what if we didn’t? What if colors didn’t exist?

In a book we read recently called The Giver by Lois Lowry their community was all about sameness, and to keep that rule everything had to be the same. Meaning everything had to be the same color, so they didn’t have any color. Just imagine a world with no color. Life would be so dull, but of course none of them knew better. If you were to grow up in a community with no color and someone told you about color, wouldn’t the whole concept be a little weird to you? This lack of color made the whole theme of the novel seem pretty sad and dull. It also made it hard to understand the setting of the book because we had no idea what anything really looked like. Same with people, it was hard to imagine what they looked like. A world without color would lack so many things. For one thing it would lack chose. Think of the shirt your wearing right now. You probably like the color of your shirt and that is an opinion. But what if there wasn’t color? You wouldn’t be stuck with the chose of choosing which shirt to buy. That also makes you lack personality. People can really tell about your personality by the clothes you wear. Colors let you show your personality. Without colors our personality wouldn’t be as unique as it is with colors.

Colors are a very important thing in this world. They let us have chose and they show our personality. Without colors the world just wouldn’t be the same, and not in a good way. We shouldn’t take colors for granted, because without colors where would we be today?
