Remembering my favorite page

This was not an easy choice for me but I'll have to choose the one that bore the headlines in the Montreal Star in 1979 that announced that once again the Montreal Canadiens hockey team had won the Stanley Cup!

This was one of the first set of headlines that I was able to see after my first cornea transplant and what a memorable moment for me! I shall never forget, and as I sit here writing this I can still feel the chills going up and down my back.

Below the bold headlines were pictures of the cup and players jumping for joy as they jostled each other to touch the prized trophy. There I was, sitting next to my dad on the couch as he gleefully held out the page to me and allowed me to read it aloud! As I read I could feel him starting to share my excitement but not for the reasons that I was excited! He was ecstatic because I was now able to read the headlines of a newspaper! My first cornea transplant was working!

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day.Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
