One of the most important aspects of the story is this link that Gabe shares with Jonas and the Giver. All three have light eyes, whereas the others in their community have dark eyes. This connection is marked in a story with themes such as Sameness and the individual versus society. This differentiation in eye color is also a symbol--at the very least, it symbolizes their ability to see things differently than others, which foreshadows Jonas' exodus from the community. It also indicates another comment on life--that among all those that are the same, more will be born who are unique, and change will be feasible.
