Mom and me with my iPad

It is so very enjoyable each time Mom and I get together to spend a few minutes with my iPad. This usually takes place whenever I wish to share an article or photo with her. Something that I am reading from the newspaper or from Facebook.

First I tell her what I am reading. Then I ask her if she would like to read/see it. If she says yes then I either walk over to her chair with iPad in hand or she will sometimes walk over to me. And there she would stand attentively and read out loud as I continue to right click along with my finger so that she could continue to read.

These are the moments that I most enjoy. The two of us, close together, sharing information and oh, yes! Mom comments as she reads and if it is a photo, she certainly gives her commentary.

This is so enjoyable for me as I get to listen to Mom's comments, her thoughts, and to her vivid descriptions of whatever photos are there. Mom is so good with this, I can surely recommend her to be an audio describer.

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!"
