National Color Day
It is hard to imagine the world without color. Without color, we would nearly be blind. Doctors check for health through the color of a patientís skin. On a late, cool autumn morning, sparkling frost and leaves changing from green to vermillion signal a change of seasons. A flush of color in the cheeks of friend sends a cue of her embarrassment. The street light turns from green to yellow, to red. In the Grand Canyon layers of sediment range in color from black to pale ash. All these signs alert us to change through color.
