Jona's Friend was late for class and had to run the standard apology procedure. They are all eleven, and will soon be giving an assignment much like a job.
I apologize for inconviencing my learning community.
for the appleJonas remembers a time when he saw an apple "change". He didn't know he was beginning to see color. His friend could not see the apple "change" Later, he had seen his friend, Fiona's hair "change" he had strong feeling for her as he had strong curiosity for the apple.
Jonas was selected to be the next receiver of memory. He was uneasy and nervous.
Jonas recieves his first memory from the Giver on the first day of his assignment... it of of a pleasant sled ride with snow and cold. He felt FREE and happy on the sled, sliding down the snow. He receives more memories later.
Jonas tells his first lie. His parents asked if he had slept soundly. He just smiled and nodded. Not ready to lie, not willing to tell the truth.
Jonas recieves a memory of war. He is very traumatized and stunned. He receives happy memories the rest of the day after that.
The Giver shows Jonas the release of a twin. jones then realizes that not only are they killing the baby, but they don't know it. They don't know the baby dies. Jonas then knows he needs to change this factor.
Jonas escapes the community with Gabe, avoiding the planes until they stop coming. Close to exhaustion and death, they find the home he saw in the memories and knows he made it. The memories that had faded away most likely returned to the community and into other members. He reached freedom on the sled.
