As my hands flow from one piano key to another, I instantly hear my eight-year-old brother Chaim’s tiny footsteps while he runs towards the living room to sing along with my piano playing. I begin play the notes of one of his favorite songs, “True Colors” by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly. The moment he hears the melody, Chaim’s almond shaped eyes crease into a straight line to make room for his gigantic smile to light up his face. The piano bench makes a loud creak while he shifts it to sit right next to me. Chaim’s small left hand finds its way to my back to sway with me while he starts to sing. And after a few seconds, I look at my beautiful brother sitting there, singing the chorus that says, “But I see your true colors shining through, I see your true colors and that's why I love you.” Suddenly the words of the song, I had listened to so many times, come to life in my mind and opens up the door of inspiration. Chaim has Down syndrome but it is not all he is. My family and I look at his true colors; his intelligence, his talents and his plethora of love. When I look at Chaim, I see all that he has accomplished, and then I recognize his disability; to me it comes second. Chaim is a unique boy of many interests that surprise the people around him every day. He plays baseball, basketball, does his homework, sings all the prayers in Synagogue each Saturday, and sings while I play piano. While many people in the world may look down on Chaim, have pity for what he lacks, I look up to Chaim and see all that I have gained from his true colors shining each moment. His determination in everything he does proves to those who doubt his abilities, that he can succeed. And to me, he deserves more than anyone I know, to be accepted in society, without Down syndrome defining him. Now Chaim looks up at me with excitement in his eyes while he finishes the song “True Colors.” He sings, “So don’t be afraid to let them show your true colors, true colors are beautiful like the rainbow.” Chaim is not held back by Down syndrome. He embraces it and shines brighter than anyone I know. He shows his true colors to the world, and I hope the world will see this as well.
