My childhood days at church

These are very priceless and precious memories that I have managed to carefully stow away in my memory bank. My parents took me to church every Sunday and along with my brothers, Robert and Jeffrey, our family would sit together in the pew and be a part of the Mass. In those days I could not really see too much around me so I had to depend on others to describe things to me. My mom was my eyes and ears in those days.

I did not have the luxury of a Braille prayer book in those days so I had to depend on my memory to help me keep up with the responses and my dad made sure that I knew them well. Then there were the days when I, along with my family, would go to church with my granny and cousins during vacation time. During the summer vacation at the beach and again at Christmas time.

I have to admit that going to church at Christmas time was always my favorite as I would use the descriptions from Mom and Granny along with my imagination to conjure up images of the Manger, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, and a richly decorated church. Once or twice I was called upon to play the organ and oh, how I loved it all.

Yes! Memories of my childhood days at church, memories forever!

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!"
