Bike races on the beach

This is yet another precious memory that I shall forever hold close to me. It was all about Dad and me racing our bicycles on the beach.

Maybe I am wrong but it always seemed to me that my dear dad allowed me to win those memorable races. He never seemed to mind each time I won but there was the odd time when he was victorious.

I used to marvel at how he never seemed to be afraid whenever we raced along the sand. The sand was so firm and we usually raced whenever the tide was out so that there was more room for us to speed along with the sea breeze pounding on our backs.

Most times it was Dad who called for a race and I never backed down. We would start with a nice easy ride and then his call would come. Gosh! He never seemed to care that I was blind!

I never seemed to care if anyone was watching. All that mattered was that Dad and I would be racing along. What wonderful memories and who knows! I may some day get to race him along that long stretch of sand in the next world!

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!"
