A memory I would pass on to the world to learn from is when my family and I took a trip to my parent's home country, Vietnam. We were already there for two weeks or so and I was in charge of taking the pictures of all the moments we had during our trip. There were hundreds of pictures in the camera. Then one day in Vietnam, we decided to take a taxi back to our hotel. We got to our hotel and I felt some thing was missing. It was my camera. I had lost the camera of all the memories saved. My whole family was mad at me, but after a while they forgave me.
