writing again

Tags:

When i first heard of the Pulse Wire i was very excited that i would make it and become a pulse wire correspondent. The weeks of writing for pulsewire were exciting and pregnant with emotion and hope. A missed dateline caused anxiety and helplessness but positive comments on any journal entry lifted my spirits.

However News that i had failed to make it to become a pulse wire correspondent was dissapointing, i didnt have the energy to go on and thought that i had lost my only chance to write again.

Today a few weeks later seeing the ethusiams that has remained with the members that did not make it, i am greatly insipired to rise and write again. i hope to continue cherishing this chance to write with you and converse with all the great people online.
I also wish to continue speaking for those who dont have the ability to talk on such a plat form. I would like to thank all members for the love and energy that flows on the network and I hope it remains that way.

welcome back

Matilda, I am so happy that you decided to continue with PulseWire as the VOF program is just one element of what World Pulse has to offer, and to be able to create a space for women to freely speak out and express themselves is our greatest mission. You made many friends on the site and I know that, like me, they missed your voice. Please continue to share with us the stories of the women and youth of Malawi, and give them that opportunity to be heard. Best wishes,
Janice

So great to hear from you

I am so pleased to hear your voice and your commitment. What heart and truthfulness you express. So many ways to communicate here on PulseWire- your voice will be heard as it is now.

Thanks for sharing with us and please keep coming back. We need you as do those who don't have the ability to talk on such a platform.

Great energy to you today!

Warmly,

Laura

Hi

I am glad you are back! I look forward to reading your journals and seeing what your views on things are. It helps us all when we see the same ideas expressed differently since it causes us to expand our own ideas and that is always a good thing. I look forward to seeing your further ideas on community media, that is such an important area that many people don't think of using.

I loved reading your ideas about making a radio a common item and the programs on it also be helpful to the community. Here in America a lot of our radio programs are what is called 'shock' where the main thing is a personalty rather then issues. I never listen to such things and wish we had more of what you would like for your area.

I would love to hear some of the beliefs of your area too. You have so much to write about that we would be interested in hearing so it is great that you are back!

Maria
