In The Giver the first memory given to Jonas was snow. If I were to give a first memory to someone it would be vacation. I would do this so their first memory would be a good one! The memory would start with flying in a plane to reach the destination. I wold make the destination be Hawaii! The vacation would be for a week and it would be filled with family fun and activities. One memorable activity would be snorkeling. Another reason why I would give this memory away first is to let the Receiver in training experience an environment much different from the environment he or she lives in!
