Therefore, our position is that no Color is naturally more "loving" than any other Color. Let's take a look at how

The grief that followed that experience has been paralyzing at times, and as a Blue, my emotions are sometimes more than I can handle. Despite the hardship of this challenge, I will never forget the service
