Checking in on Your Feature Stories

Greetings, correspondents!

I am delighted to see all the feature stories that have been posted so far! It is such an honor to witness how much each of you has grown as a writer these past months.

This is just a friendly reminder that your stories are due by end of day tomorrow, Sunday, October 18th. After the stories are in, Scott will be sending out the last round of evaluations to the mentors. Soon after, the Voices of Our Future team will submit writing samples of the top six correspondents to our final selection committee. The committee will then select three correspondents to come to the States in 2010 for a speaking and media tour.

Scott and I, of course, will keep you informed every step of the way. This is a nail biter for sure!

It goes without saying that each one of you is worthy of an "award" beyond imagination. Your words are the sparks of social change across the globe. You are the new Pulse of the world.

With Love,
Jennifer

THE SOUL OF WORLD PULSE

Let us be a loudspeaker
for women of the world.

Let us call forth voice
where before there was silence.

Let us stand back while they speak up,
for their words are so beautiful they
need no adornment.

Let us be their platform, their forum,
their safe haven, their sanctuary,
an amplifier no one can ignore.

Let us create a world where women are
not only free, but empowered so greatly
as to be unstoppable.

A world where women can
transform her life as well as the lives of those
around her by simply raising her voice.

One voice at a time, millions of voices strong.

Until the sound is so deafening, the whole
world will hear their music.

It’s not just a dream—it’s a revolution
that has already begun.

This is the pulse that transforms the world.

Late assignment

Jennifer,
I send my first draft late and i was not happy with it so i did not post it on Friday when i had access to the internet. It's a Monday today and i have received feedback from my mid-wives and i want to input the comments into the draft. I will be sending it shortly hopefully in the next hour.

Writing this feature article made me appriciate the opportunity that was given to me by World Pulse.
