First Memory By: Ellie

In Language Arts class we are reading The Giver. The Giver is an old man that has memories of the world before Sameness.

If I were The Giver I would give away the memory of cherry blossoms blowing off of a tree in the spring because, firstly, cherry blossoms are beautiful, and secondly they smell really nice from a distance. In the memory I would include a meadow where the cherry blossom tree is on top of and a garden with the most vibrant colored flowers that would smell sweet. I think that the Receiver would enjoy this memory because of the beauty of it all.
