In the book (and later movie) "The Outsiders," author S.E. Hinton uses sunsets to connect two characters from vastly different social and economic backgrounds. Ponyboy Curtis is what is known as a "Greaser." He is from the poor, working class side of town. Cherry Valance is known as a "Social," from the upper middle class side. Although both groups attend the same high school and classes, it is rare for the two groups to interact. In one scene though, the two characters come together at a drive-in when the sun is setting. Cherry guesses that Ponyboy is the type of person who likes to watch the sun set. Later, Ponyboy contemplates this:

"It seemed funny to me that the sunset she saw from her patio and the one I saw from the back steps was the same one.  Maybe the two different worlds we lived in weren't so different.  We saw the same sunset."

I have loved that paragraph since I've been old enough to understand it (note: The Outsiders is one of my all-time favorite movies). What Hinton did here though is use the sunset as a metaphor for the larger world we share. Despite our differences, no matter where we our in the world, we share the same sunset. .

If only we could do that. I will sadly live and die wondering why human beings hate one another for things so trivial as skin color, religion, gender, etc. Even when the skin and religion is the same,  further divisions are made at the economic level. We will never get to a place where we realize our commonalities as human beings are as unifying as watching the sunset together. Stay gold, Ponyboy!
