Color — it is so important in our lives, we use it to find areas of buildings and know when to go for traffic. What is the real importance of color in our lives??
Color is everywhere. It’s in rainbows, the sky, the grass, apples, oranges and so much more. In Lois Lowry’s The Giver, the characters live in a society where there is no color, and Jonas is one of the only ones that can see color. I think that the color symbolizes the ability to see that there’s something wrong in that society. It reminds me of the saying, “You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain,” the color shows that there’s no pain in that society but there’s also no real happiness.
I think that color is very important in our lives today, but because we are so used to it we don’t appreciate it as much as we should. How would the sky look if it wasn’t blue or if the grass wasn’t green, or if the amber waves of grain were actually just gray waves of grain?
