  • 1. PerseveranceBy: Darius Perry The Giver
  • 2. • Jonas is selected to inherit the position of "Receiver of Memory,” The person who stores all the past memories of the time before Sameness, in case they are ever needed to aid in decisions that others lack the experience to make. As Jonas receives the memories from the Giver, he discovers the power of knowledge. The people in his community are happy because they do not know of a better life, but the knowledge of what they are missing out on could create major chaos. He faces a dilemma: Should he stay with the community, his family living a shallow life without love, color, choices, and knowledge, or should he run away to where he can live a full life? Jonas
  • 3. • Jonas has to make the decision to pick a life without color, knowledge, and important memories or he can run away and give Gabe the opportunity to live the proper way. I think Jonas should live his life the proper way, with color and knowledge. I also think that he should take Gabe with him for him to have a better chance at life than Jonas did.
