(9) Imagen

The song Imagen, by John Lennon is about having no worries. Not worrying about other things that affect the work be live in.

The Giver relates to this song because there are no worries, everything is planned out the right way. A way were no one has to worry about anything, everything that must happen, happens. There's no worrying about jobs, or family or anything. Things happen in order and in a peaceful way.

(8) Freedom



The freedom in the Preamble is granted by making sure everyone is safe with their surroundings and the things that they do and use in everyday life. I think that freedom is a very important concept to our country and life because without it no one would no the real you, what religion you are, what you enjoy, who you like, what you like. Everyone has a different opinion on things and without freedom no one would be able to express themselves in a good way.

(7) Jonas' POV Change

Jonas' point of view changes from everyone else's point of view because he's being able to see and recognize different memories from various passes. His point of view changes because no one else knows about the memories he is receiving from the Giver. Because no one else knows about these powerful memories, and no one can know, he's able to see various perspectives of past generations and no one else can.

(6) New Chapter Tiltle

Chapter Five

The Fear of Telling

In chapter five Jonas must tell his dream to his family in the early morning, but is afraid of what they'll think because it's his very first one. To be fully honest, I would be afraid as well. So, I named this untitled chapter, the fear of telling based on his fear of telling his first stirring.

(4) Unity Through Comformaty?

Unity would come after comformity because comformity means that everyone is the same, everyone does the same things, wears the same things, etc. Unity comes in because no one really cares. No one is jealous, we all wear the same things, so what's there to be jealous of? Everyone comes together as a hig group and no one has jealousy over one another. That's why I think that because everyone is the same, everyone is also United to each other. If Jonas' community was all different like ours, then there wouldn't be any United groups. So with comformanity everything is united, no one is jealous over one another, no one is unhappy with one another. Everything is much more calm. :))

(3) What if?



I honestly don't think that history is very important to the present time. I say this because I mean they're all dead anyway. It's not like they can come back alive and tell you the future situations. Yes, I do understand that they do help our future and the historical event that happened, that's why it's important. And yes, they can help us out in the future, but I just don't think they're important. The most important is now, the present, not the past. We learn from the past, and we can make the future better with the past, but I just don't think that it's important. It happened, yes it happened, but is it still as important as it was, no. 

I honestly did disagree with the argument, well half and half. Like, yes I do understand and I do agree that history is important, but yet again this is the present. I really don't know how to explain it, but I don't think it's important. Things will happen, then and now. Not everything can be fixed by the past and even if things are better now because of the past historical events, the future is just getting better by the second and everything isn't just based on the past. In the future there are going to be better people like the ones in the past and they're going to keep making better improvements and they're not getting them from the past.

(2) Two Worlds Colliding

8 personally feel like we barely have similar things between both communities/worlds. We do, do volunteer hours especially for school like for NJHS. We do get jobs that suit ourselves. 

I think that there is a lot more differences;
        -We don't call each other by our age numbers.
        -We keep track of our age no matter how old we are.
        -We don't have Nurturing Centers.
        -Babies and older people don't get released.
        -We don't get assignments/careers at the age of 12.
        -We don't have big celebrations or ceremonies for our age or "release"
There are many more things that are different in Jonas' world and in our world. In my opinion.

I wouldn't really want to live in Jonas' world because I wouldn't really want to have my job chosen at such a young age, what if I don't like it or it really doesn't suit me. I wouldn't want to have family feeling time after dinner. I feel like if your family knew about certain things, they would be upset, and it's dinner, so that would be upsetting! Overall, I wouldn't want to live or exist in Jonas' world. Even though our world isn't perfect, I would chose the one I'm in, over Jonas'.

(1) The Giver - Lois Lowry

The Giver
Lois Lowry

I wouldn't like for someone to chose my career because what if I don't like it? Or I change my mind? Or perhaps, I change my mind and don't want that specific career or profession.  The fact that I wouldn't really be able to chose what I want to exceed on, would be something that I wouldn't really agree to. One good thing though, is that I wouldn't have to really worry about what I want. I wouldn't spend so much time deciding, it would just be a 1, 2, 3 process, which is better.

Having this desiscion made form me at just 12 years old would be a bit rushing because I'm barely 12 and I'm still not in the stage of pure responsibility and maturity. Yes, it would be nice to have a job at 12 and have something distracting to do, something you enjoy. Yet again, we're still not in that correct stage.
