The Giver by Lois Lowry?
sorry that it's kind of long.
After experiencing the feeling of love from the Giver and his memories, Jonas thought about the way life must have been when there was love and realized it was probably a "dangerous way to live." Think about what Jonas meant. What was "dangerous" about that kind of life, and what was a "safe" life like? What were the advantages and disadvantages of each choice?
Write an essay in which you either support or criticize Jonas's decision to escape the community in light of the choice he made between a safe life and a dangerous one.
As you write, remember your essay will be scored based on how well you:
develop a multi-paragraph response to the assigned topic that clearly communicates your thesis to the audience.
support your thesis with meaningful examples and references from the text, carefully citing any direct quotes.
organize your essay in a clear and logical manner, including an introduction, body, and conclusion.
use well-structured sentences and language that are appropriate for your audience.
edit your work to conform to the conventions of standard American English.

Dangerous things about a life w/ emotions & feelings- people can make their own CHOICES, and those choices might not be the right ones
Safe things about emotionless society Jonas lives in- People's lives are decided for them, they don't have to make choices and are saved from mistakes
hope that helped :)

i think jonas realizes that safe isnt always good. like its not a good environment and it doesnt promote a good life
at the end, hes willing to risk the "dangerous" life because he knows that it has to be better than his current environment
