History is important to me, and dementia runs in my family, so I often think about memory.
It’s one of those things we sometimes wish we could control.
Children’s author Lois Lowry explored that “what if we could” possibility when she wrote The Giver, and she talks about it in the following video. Thanks to Jane Heitman Healy for sharing the video with me.
What do you think of Lowry’s theory of what could happen to people if we controlled memory?
