In addition, I also encourage you to explore other parts of this website. Specifically, there is an opportunity to have your story published in the next magazine. The theme for submissions is "land". Do you have a personal story about your connections to land? Or does land mean something else to you? To find out more about the program details, check out the My Story page on PulseWire:

not a pipe dream

Hi Marisa,

I may be a hopeless optimist as well, but I don't believe equality for all is a pipe dream. I'm encouraged by your words of what you're doing in your community to help others discover their voices to add to the general song/chant for peace and justice. I've found optimists in the midst of rebuilding their homes from the fires and destruction of war. I think it's one of the most important qualities to have, and to act upon.

Welcome to this community! I look forward to checking out your website and hearing more from you here.
