My coconut trees

They were tall and graceful! They were huge and they always towered over me! Yes, they were big, stately, and they never failed to fascinate me. The thing is that I was never really able to see them when I was a child because I never had enough vision to do so but when I got my vision it was one of the first things that I beheld and I was not disappointed!

I never told anyone how delighted I was when I first saw them! They were like magic to me and I never failed to admire their stateliness and their size. I loved to watch them sway freely in the breeze. I loved to watch as their branches would first spread out and then come together as the breeze would first pull them apart and then bring them back together. I could even sometimes see the coconuts hanging from the tree branches and sometimes I would even be in the nick of time to see one of those large fruits fall to the ground with a sound of a large thump.

Ah yes! Those were my coconut trees, imbedded in my mind forever.

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!"
