Remembering my childhood mirror

I can still remember this very special and precious mirror. Although I could not really see very much because of very poor vision, it was enough for me to be able to put my nose right up against it and strain my eyes to see whatever I could.

The mirror resided in my mom's wardrobe and each time she opened it to find something or put something in, there I was, glued to my childhood mirror. It was a full length mirror and to this day it does still indeed live on. The other day I remembered it when my mom went to her wardrobe but now things are very different.

Yes, I know that it is still there and yes I can still touch its surface but no! I can no longer see anything in it and so I have to depend on my childhood memories.

In those days I used to be able to see a glimpse of my reflection and I used to play games with myself; swaying back and forth in front of the mirror to see if I could catch a glimpse of myself. I had so much fun but I'll never know if my mom caught on to my childish games.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

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!"
