The Color of People by James F. Goffio, Joseph Goffio and Sultan Sayed is a true story written to inspire people. The story is centred on the lives of two main characters and their families. Goffio (et al) alternates between characters as the plot unfolds. Whichever perspective they choose to narrate from highlights the similarities and differences shared by these two individuals. Despite being one generation apart, the lives of Joseph Goffio and the youthful Sultan Sayed run parallel throughout the storyline, before meeting in a euphoric climax. The Color of People emphasises the importance of love, family, mutual respect for humanity, self-confidence, and the need for persistence and resilience to follow our dreams despite the hardships faced.
James F. Goffio, Joseph Goffio and Sultan Sayed's story was indeed “based on the extraordinary lives of two ordinary people.” Joseph and Sultan aren’t your usual supernatural heroes; on the contrary, they are larger than life human beings with a heart that can save the entire human race. The Color of People transcends all boundaries of hate, religion, segregation and discrimination. This book encourages interacting as people created by one Supreme Being instead of persons separated by worldly means of division. The Color of People is a constant reminder and a testament that love, unity, family, respect, humanitarianism, strong moral values and being of a good character are “the true color of people.” I thoroughly enjoyed reading this incomparably descriptive spectacle, which was packed with literary expressions and filled with humour. Be inspired.
