Finding the microphone

I found this to be a challenge at a recent meeting that I attended. There I was, seated at a table with others with microphones placed close to us, but darned if I could find mine when I went to make a comment.

I began groping to my right and then to my left and then in front of me but when your friend, who is also blind, is sitting to your right and tries to help you, it turns out to be a bit of a madcap chase.

Then someone sighted is sitting to your left but somehow they do not seem to be aware that you are searching for your microphone. So what do you do?

I had no choice but to interrupt proceedings and ask for help. It turns out that it was not that bad after all. Several pairs of helping hands came to my rescue.

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!"
