When airport security does not tell me

I don't think that this is a problem that is only common to me, and if you think about it, this type of problem can happen in almost any situation. So, this is what often happens to me whenever I travel.

I go through security and when it comes to the security agent wanting to search my carry on, they often forget to tell me what they are doing. That is: what they are removing from my bag, where they are putting it, and when they are finished checking it. So, what normally happens is this: I become confused and disoriented. I do not know where they have placed my possessions, and then I have to feel my way around on the counter to find them because nine out of ten times they are surely not going to replace my possessions in my bag.

I recognize that the security area of any airport is almost always a very busy and bustling place to be, but it would be nice if there could be a process whereby things are explained to those of us who are unable to see so that we can be more comfortable and less hesitant.

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!"
