The ceremony of 12

This December the ceremony of twelve was happening. At this ceremony the Chief Elder was giving out jobs, Asher was Assistant Director of Recreation, Fiona was now the caretaker of the old, Madeleine was now at the fish hatchery, and Inger was a birthmother. But Jonas was shocked when he was skipped. Then he went last because his job was to be the Receiver Memory “ the capacity to see benony”.

the qualities of a Receiver of Memory

When he was selected as the Receiver of Memory and the crowd was chanting his name” JONAS. JONAS. JONAS.” he was feeling gratitude and felt honored, but he was also scared about being the Receiver of Memory. This job is important and rare. Jonas must go through physical pain, which is very rare in the Community.
