Blog #10: Understanding
Jonas' point of view makes me see that he sees the community differently than everyone else. Jonas thinks it isn't fair that people don't have certain things anymore and that they should bring them back. He thinks that the community would be better with colors and hills and all the things that were in the past. From what I can see, this community is VERY strict on being the same. I mean, they don't have any color at all. Everything is equal and I feel like this is effecting Jonas and the Giver. They both know about the past and they see what their community is now as something horrible. I do think that it isn't right to have every single little thing be equal. They think that differences can lead to many bad things. It might but sometimes differences can be a good thing. Everyone deserves to be different in some manner. This community, doesn't all that and they should. I feel like this community is awful, equality cannot always be the best solution.
