Memory of a first ice hockey game

This is a memory that I shall always cherish for as long as I live, memories of a first ice hockey game when I had to use my imagination to help me figure things out. For, at that time I did not have enough vision to see what was taking place on TV and so I had to depend on the announcers on the radio to provide the description. I must admit, however, that when I did get new vision and was able to see what was going on, I was not too far off.

There were some things that I had to readjust to after getting my new vision. Things such as the shape of the player's stick, the net and goal posts, and the actual shape of the ice rink. My imagination fell short in its job to help me out when my vision was not quite there.

My first memory of a hockey game was when Montreal played Boston and from the get go I took to hockey like water off of a duck's back, as they would say. I loved the speed and quickness of the game! I loved the excitement in the commentator's voice, and I enjoyed it most whenever I heard a goal being scored. Montreal won and I was happy because this was my home town!

Ah yes! A great memory of a first hockey game!

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 heros 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!"
