If you could only carry one memory with you into the afterlife, which would you choose?

You cannot distinguish clearly between memories.... they are all tightly connected into one long continous string, from the day we're born till the day we die. Yes, of course you can take out a piece of those memories, a fragment, but it would always be incomplete, without context.

And a memory without context is like a line without meaning, food without taste. If you do not remember what came before, and what came after, it loses the value you initially put into it. So, you cannot take only one single memory with you into your afterlife, because when you then look at it, you would always wonder...

Why? When? Who?

You sit back with a single facet... a moment in time, a time that is no more and of which you have no recollection.

And you would end up hating that facet, since it would remind you of the things you have lost and can never regain.

I wouldn't bring any memory into my afterlife.
