Remembering Margie

I still have vivid memories of her but I am not sure if my memories really do her justice. Or I should say I am not sure if my memories are that accurate.

Margie came into my life when I was but a wee one! I somehow remember her as being dark in color, small, and a bit moody. I remember, too, that I used to play with her but at that time of my life I did not have enough vision to really see her.

There is one particular memory of Margie that I have and sadly enough this memory was one of her the day before she passed on. She was seated on the dresser beside our kitchen sink and I was standing very close to her. Her face was practically touching mine and I am not really sure how we both managed to get there.

I was not afraid because I knew that my parents were close by, seated at our dining room table, watching us. It seems to me that Margie and I stood there so close to each other for quite some time, then she jumped down and was gone.

My mom would later reflect that she often thought of this particular memory wondering what was going on in dear Margie's mind at that moment.

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!"
