The theme of "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury is that one shouldn't judge a person because they don't understand their inner struggles and are jealous of their experiences. The children do not know what Margot experienced with the Sun. They are jealous that Margot knows the Sun, but they only know of the Sun. The children end up disregarding her feelings and locking her in a closet during the nearly the most few precious hours of her life. Once they go out and see the Sun for two hours they understand how Margot feels empty without it. They go through a feeling of euphoria, as the narrator said, "The children layout, laughing, on the jungle mattress, and heard it sigh and squeak under them, resilient and alive.
