Chapter 6 (post 2)

          In pages 48 and 49 in “The Giver” there are more hints about what release means. From these hints I think that release means to be sent to a new community or be sent “elsewhere”. I think that it means to go to another community because that is what Asher said to Jonas and he told the story of a person who applied for release one day and was gone the next. The person was never seen again. A quote from the story to justify my arguement is, “If you don’t fit in, you can apply for Elsewhere and be released. My mother says that once, about ten years ago, someone applied and was gone the next day.”
