Yesterday, when i came home from work, while i was at the door, my son asked me again.
son: mom, was i born brown?
i: why are you asking me this question again, we had this conversation already.
son: i know, i know..i was thinking because if you said apples come from apple tree and oranges come from orange tree..how come they change in color after a few days?
i: what do you mean they change in color?
son: like the red apples and banana on the table, after a few days it gets darker, or gets to be browner because it gets rotten…am i like that? am i getting darker each day like the fruits on the table
i: son, sometimes you get browner because of the sun, the more you expose yourself to the sun, the browner you get..but you are still brown in color…
son: oh! how come papa God made different kinds of color of people? why not just one color?
i: God created different colors of people because he doesnt want earth to be a boring place to live..like the fruits and vegetables, it taste better if there is a mix, fruit salad and vegetable salad taste better than just a single fruit and vegetable..
son: you are right! earth is happier and lovelier to live if there is a mix of people like the mix of fruits and vegetables.. wow! papa God is so cool….
