Mom and I with our new coffee machine

A few months ago Mom and I went shopping for a coffee machine and we decided beforehand that we would each purchase our own. It was quite a new experience for me because it was the first time that I was getting to actually hold one of these things in my hands.

Mom was very good as she described each machine to me and then let me hold it in my hands. We looked at several different makes and sizes and asked several questions of the salesman. I had to depend on my intuition, description from Mom, info from the salesman, and finally it was up to me to make up my mind.

This time, unlike previous times, color of machine did not much matter to me. It all came down to how it felt to me and at the end of the day I was quite happy with my choice.

It did not end there, however. When we returned home Mom had to show me how to use my new coffee machine and it was really not that difficult. I learned how to measure the coffee and water and then let the machine do the rest.

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!"
