The Parable of the Rainbow Colors
Juan M. Flavier

It all started as innocent statements by each of the colors. No attempt was made by
anyone to denigrate the others. There was even an element of restraint and humility.
But as time went on, the colors declarations became stronger and haughty with an
overtone which tended to out down the other colors. Their claim became very explicit as
to who was the best color.
It reached the point when the colors were actually quarrelling. Said the color RED.
“I am the brightest! for red is the most striking. Why? Life-sustaining blood is colored red.
I represent courage and bravery. Even love symbols like the heart and the roses presented
are red in color.”
The color YELLOW retorted. “What can be brighter than my yellow exemplified by
the sun? I am the color of gaiety and of warmth. Without me, only the eye-glaring ones
What an outlandish claim! Interposed the color ORANGE. “Sunrise is orange, not
yellow. I am more important because I represent health and strength. Look at the ripened
fruits and vegetables, they are predominantly orange.”
Well, if you are talking about vegetables and leaves, you are referring to my color,
declared the color GREEN. “I am the symbol of life. All that thrives in the fields and the
forests is the greenery I provide. I am the most important color.”
The color BLUE could not help it anymore so it shouted. “What can be more
expansive than the skies and the seas? Do you forget that the farthest skies and the
deepest seas are blue? I represent patriotism. I stand for the depth of feelings and
extensive spaces.”
The color INDIGO came out with a statement. “You talk about wide areas. I hope
you realized the largest area in the world is silence and I represent that dimension with
my color. It means thoughtfulness. It is prayer expressed in the deepest of feelings.”
“Aha! You forget the pomp of royalty and power is VIOLET, shouted the color. I
am wisdom and authority. What can be more overwhelming?”
Suddenly, the rain interrupted the contentious exchange of arguments. “Yes, you
all have your unique features. But all of you have a special role. And more importantly,
you need each other to give the mix of colors for beauty. Because of your quarrelling. . .
God has asked me to inform you of a decision. From now on, you will not be seen
separately. When it rains, a strip of colors will appear in the sky. You will all appear
together. You will be called a rainbow. You will then represent cooperation and hope. The
rainbow in the sky.

With that, the rain disappeared.
