Looking back at life since 2020, there is fear, distance, the absence of bodies, and the loss of a concrete reality. Individuals became scattered to anonymous spots on maps. Students, teachers, freelancers, shop assistants, social workers, farmers, retired civil servants...We are participants of the Folk Memory Project, witnesses of the time of the pandemic, as well as survivors from the ups and downs of recent human history. We gathered online. Individual witnesses led to the reconstruction of a community. The reading by a group of people, with each hailing from a different village, flows into a chorus of voices that form a life-saving ark.
