Remembering the faces


This is a constant challenge and this is what I have to continuously keep remembering. As they say, faces change and the face of a child often changes as they grow into adulthood. So because of this my memories are often way behind when it comes to remembering the faces.

For example; the faces of my nieces and nephews have all changed since I lost my sight in 2004 but in order for me to keep up I need to depend on the memories of their faces at the time I lost my vision, which was in January 2004. And now that I no longer have the vision to see faces I need to depend on those I trust to describe faces to me.

Once I can orient myself to this concept I am fine. It took me quite a while to adjust but today I am just fine. I still use my memories but now I add someone else's descriptions to my memory bank

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!"
