Spinning around the floor

This was one of my favorite things to do when I was a kid. Sometimes my twin brother, Jeffrey, used to do it with me but for the most part I would do it alone and boy did I have fun.

I would stand off to the side in our large kitchen and from my spot I would proceed to spin around the floor. Vivid colors would go flashing by and the red and white tiles of our floor would whiz past my visual radar. I could feel the air whirring through my hair and I would say to myself, "Going! Going!"

I am not sure if anyone ever noticed me doing this because no one ever said anything to me. If they did then they never said anything because they probably felt that it was completely harmless, just another childish pastime of mine.

I can still remember doing it and the fun that I had. Once in a while I would tumble to the floor but as quick as I could I would pick myself up and keep on going. Ah yes, just another childhood memory for me to share!

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
