My beloved ice skating rink

I shall never forget my beloved ice skating rink for as long as I live. Huge, outdoors, and simply refreshing moments to remember.

It is located on the Toronto waterfront. It is always a pleasure to skate there, with the wind blowing vigorously across my cheeks and playing roughly in my hair. So many others skating along with me and whooping for joy as they race around the rink.

Kids learning to skate and their parents watching over them. Teens racing each other around the rink. Adults skating leisurely and chatting amiably to each other as their blades scrape along the ice. And me? Skating with friends and just enjoying the outdoors on a winter's evening.

I shall always remember this. I went mainly at Christmas time and as I look back now I can visualize the lights of all colors and sizes blinking as I skated around the rink with my friends. Ah, yes! My favorite ice skating rink forever.

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!"
