Children Love Rainbows

 

I think the first thing all of our children drew, once the scribble stage had ended, was a rainbow. And they have continued to draw them ever since. It’s funny that, isn’t it? First of all the colours were applied to their pictures in a random fashion. But of recent, the colour sequencing has been more specific. Radiating from red through the spectrum to purple. All of our children realise the way that the colours morph into the next (red to orange to yellow etc). We haven’t progressed on to understanding  how the rainbow is made from the splitting of white light (a bit too scientific at this stage), but the children are very aware that each and every colour is just as important as all of the rest! Now, at this point, you must realise that I make it my place to be non political or judgmental, but I have to wonder if the LGBTQ community had this in mind when adopting the rainbow as a symbol of unity! So maybe it wasn’t all about ‘Dorothy’ after all. That said, in the wider community, I think that each and every one of us should consider the rainbow and our own, unique importance and that we are, within our own individuality, just as significant as everybody else!
