"Red. Jonas could see that very colour. Not knowing how he could, he stood in shock"(206).
"Jonas did it, he crossed the border of memory and released all the memories back into the world"(279).
Jonas, the protagonist, is working to allow his community to break free from the dictator-like ruling. Using force and forbidden actions he gets to his end goal.
At this point in the book, its describing how the memories are allowing Jonas to see colour. Using imagery the author allows the reader to create a better understanding of what's happening.
The theme of the novel is the grasses as always greenery on the other side. Jonas keeps pushing to find a better meaning for his life and he finds the greener grass in "Elsewhere".

"Frightened was the way he has felt a year ago when an unidentified aircraft has overflown the community twice. He had seen it both times. Squinting toward the sky he has seen the sleek jet, almost blur out on it high speed, go past, and a send later, h heard the blast of sound that followed"(98)
