We all have the power to forget things, and most of the time we cannot stop ourselves from losing memories. We should never choose to forget things, as they have the ability to do in the movie "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". Memories exist to tell us where we are and inform us about the world around us. Memories contain all of the things that we have ever learned an who we are. They shoult not be destroyed for any reason because it will be losing experience, intelligence, and a part of one's self. Destroying memories removes you from the world in which you live and would prevent you from being able to deal with what life gives you.
