Dear Brothers and Sisters,
How are you doing today?
When was the last time you saw a rainbow? A few weeks ago, I came across a rainbow on a beautiful day.
I remember, when I was a little girl, I often wondered where the rainbows come from. Thanks to the physics lessons in high school, I’ve learned that a rainbow is formed when the sunlight shines through raindrops. Rainbows are the phenomenon of light dispersion. That’s what remains in my mind from physics classes. In simple words, when it’s sunny and rainy at the same time, rainbows might come out.
This year in Sapa, during the summer time from June to early August, I could see more than six splendid rainbows. Sometimes, I could witness two rainbows in a day. One was in the early morning, and the other one was in the afternoon. Each time contemplating a rainbow, I feel so good – the rainbow gives me hope for the future.
Hopefully, I can see more rainbows next year.
I would love to end my piece of writing with a quote by Gilbert Chesterton, “Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.”
Wishing you all a colourful day!
