Section 13 Group 2- Discussion

Hello! Sorry this is late. I'm stuck on campus until 9:00pm then have to drive home.

Today we discussed memories. For example, what we remember from being young, how we remember it. Some suggested that the reasoning behind certain memories was because it made them feel a certain way, basically leaving a lasting impression that ties to the memory. Some mentioned that once they see a picture they are able to remember what was going on when that was taken it basically jolts their memory into remembering.
