Hi! I am Jonas. I live in the Community. In the Community, there is Sameness. I am an Eleven and my Ceremony of Twelve is coming up soon.
This is Father, Mother, This is Asher and Fiona. and Lily. They are my They are my friends. family unit.
The Ceremony of Twelve has finally come! However, when it's my turn to receive my assignment, the Chief Elder skips me. She comes back to me last and presents me with the honor of becoming the next Receiver of Memory.
The current Receiver of Memory, who I call the Giver, trains me and transmits memories of the world's past to me. My eyes are opened to truth and difference (and color).
I can barely stand living in the Community of ignorant people in Sameness with the knowledge I have of what things could be (and what happens to people who oppose the Community). I must do something to help.
Jonas and the Giver give memories to everyone in the Community and terminate Sameness. Then, the people of Jonas's community spread the memories to other Communities, and the Giver and Jonas help turn the world back to how it was before Sameness.
