When the iPad went dark

Looking back on this particular memory, I can smile to myself now because if my mom did not tell me so I would never have known it.

On this particular day I wanted to share something with Mom, an article that I had come across while surfing with my iPad. So here I was, so very proud of myself walking towards her with iPad in hand. Then bingo!

She calmly said that she could not read the iPad but thanks to my quick thinking I fixed that quite easily. I just had to go into the settings and increase the brightness and then after that all was well. Not sure why it happened in the first place.

Mom went about her business and read my article while I stood waiting for her to finish. It is so funny, I had no idea that the screen was dark in the first place and then I had to simply go into the settings and fix things.

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!"
