Red, blue, purple, and pink are all colors our eyes allow us to see. If we lived in a world without color we would never be able to see things in the way we see them now. All the colors in a sunset and rainbow would be lost. Everything would loose its beauty and uniqueness.

In the book the book the Giver, all the people see in black and white. Their lives aren’t unique they all see the same thing. They have no idea of the beauty of colors. The author has everyone see in black and white, because in there community they all have to be the same, (ordinary) and being able to see color and beauty makes everyone different. They’ve never seen the flowers in their different shades of pink, purple, and red. They’ve never seen the sky change colors from a light baby blue to a blue that is as dark as the ocean. They’ve never seen anything beautiful because the beauty of everything is based on the colors. The picture above looks dull and boring in black and white, but once it is colored it makes everything look exciting and happy.

If we were to see everything in black and white we wouldn’t appreciate uniqueness. The picture of all the flowers above is so pretty, and so wonderful to look at. Once we switch the switch to black and white we loose all of the beauty of the flowers and everything in the surroundings.

Coincidence?

If you know my family well enough, you would know that we tend to hurt ourselves a lot. Just last month my brother twisted his arm, and broke it. Although they are all on accident there has been one injury that has happened to my sister, brother, and me. When we were all in kindergarten we cracked our heads open, and had to get stitches/staples. Was it a coincidence, or not?

When I was in kindergarten, I was on the playground and decided to try and impress my friends. It didn’t go well when I got pushed off the platform, and hit my head. I went to the hospital, and had to get several staples in my head. Two years later my sister, Logan, entered kindergarten. She got sick right after Christmas. It made her lose her balance often. One time, she fell off a chair and hit her head on a table. She had to get six stitches. A few years after that my brother became a kindergartner. He never got hurt throughout the entire year, but after school got out we went to Mexico. The second day on the trip we went zip lining, and an accident occurred. My brother, who just finished kindergarten, was hit in the head with a heavy load of zip line equipment. He had to get stitches in the front and back of his head.

This year my other younger brother, Ryder, is in kindergarten. He hasn’t cracked his head open…yet. What do you think, coincidence or not?
