Did you enjoy this week’s reading? Lois Lowry gives many clues about Jonas’s community. We learn about Sameness: climate control, the absence of color, the same skin tone, flat land. Is this a good thing? What was sacrificed to achieve sameness? Would you be willing to make these sacrifices? Why? Differences can be great—colors, seasons, mountains and plains. Differences can cause problems too, or do they? In our communities, skin color causes fear among some people. Is different colored skin the problem or is the problem the way one person chooses to see another? Let me know what you think?
