When I lost my wallet


I don't think that I am any different than most people when it comes to reacting after I discover that my wallet has been lost! No, not at all!

Yes, I lost it in a cab going to the airport but thanks to my friend, Diane, I am alive to tell the story today. In putting the pieces together, I dropped it on the seat while I was sorting through my things in my carry-on. I discovered it missing when I got to the airport and then, thanks to some quick thinking Air Canada agents, my friend Diane found it.

She felt around on the seat and there it was! Diane is also blind so she had to use the technique of feeling around to find my wallet. I just hope that it never happens again.

For a blind person it is even more frightening when you have to depend on others to help you and when you can't see what is going on then all heck breaks loose. Thank goodness there was a happy ending.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

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!"
