Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel: all
claimed that they were the best, the most important, the most
useful, the favorite.

Green said "Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life
and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees, leaves - without me, all
animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I
am in the majority."

Blue interrupted: "You only think about the earth, but consider the
sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn
up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace
and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing."

Yellow chuckled: "You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety,
and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow,
the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole
world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun."

Orange started next to blow her trumpet: "I am the color of health
and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the
needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of
carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes, and pawpaws. I don't hang
around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset,
my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of

Red could stand it no longer. He shouted out: "I am the ruler of all
of you. I am blood - life's blood! I am the color of danger and of
bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. I bring fire into the
blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the
color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the

Purple rose up to his full height. He was very tall and spoke with
great pomp: "I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs, and
bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and
wisdom. People do notquestion me - they listen and obey."

Finally, Indigo spoke, much more quietly than all the others. "You
hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I
represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need
me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace."

And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own
superiority. Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly
there was a startling flash of bright lightening - thunder rolled
and boomed.

Rain started to pour down relentlessly. The colors crouched down in
fear, drawing close to one another for comfort. In the midst of the
clamor, rain began to speak: "You foolish colors, fighting amongst
yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest. Don't you know that
you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different? Join
hands with one another and come to me."

Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands. The
rain continued: "From now on, when it rains, each of you will
stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that
you can all live in peace.

"The rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow." and so, whenever a
good rain washes the world, and a rainbow appears in the sky, let us
remember to appreciate one another.
