Orphan Master’s Son #4

When Sun Moon asked if she could take her father’s instrument to America, Commander Ga told her that she couldn’t take any possessions. That it is safer to keep people in your heart than within an object. What does this say about possessions? Is it better to have memories or keepsakes?

    I think Commander Ga makes a fair statement when he says that to Sun Moon. In this instance, it is making a statement about communism taking everything from you, except your memories. Your memories do not belong to the collective, even if they want you to give them.

    I do believe, however, that it is best to have both memories and keepsakes, if you can. I love the unexpected pleasure that comes from seeing items that remind me of family members who have since passed on, but I also cherish the memories that I have from them as well.
