I think that Jonas’s first memory should have been a memory about the actual OUTSIDE world out of the community. If it were like this, Jonas would get a feel for real life; not boring life in Sameness and within the Community. Also, in the memory, there should be animals like hippos, elephants, etc, so he knows that they actually exist. In the memory, he would be sitting in the warm sun, or on a beach, or the wide open plains. I would give this memory to Jonas because it is important to know what is going on in the real world.
