or uncomfortable the family has to comfort that person because that is what they are required. The Giver tells him he is beginning to see color. I think it is ok to get a new child but name it a different name. And that is the real reason that The Receiver is so vital to them. When The Giver and Jonas discuss the sharing of memories with the community, the Giver explains, but then everyone would be burdened and pained. In Jonas community as he is gaining more memory from being the Receiver he is learning about color and choosing. (93) To maintain their utopian community the people in it have decided to rule out choosing because it can cause some problems like doing something wrong.
I strongly disagree with sameness. Jonas makes a precise reflection that identifies the purpose of sameness when he states, If everythings the same, then there arent any choices. Would anyone be happy? Well Jonas had to stop and think it through. As a result of this change everyone would not be the same; so color must be banished. Color raises emotions which lead to variations in feelings. It isnt fair that nothing has color!
