Remembering is a bit like daydreaming, and sometimes daydreaming is a bit like remembering

A few weeks ago, on 27th of January, for the International Remembrance Day, we explained to our kids what it meant to have the strict order to stay at home, without being able to go out except at scheduled times, with the ban on meeting people and gathering in public, even in those places which have always been considered public, as are cafes and parks. We spoke about the restriction related to activities of any kind, except for the supply of basic necessities and basic production, but only during the allowed hours. We remembered the queues in front of the few shops that remained open.
