I've been a World Pulse listener in the past and look forward to hearing the stories of the courageous, innovative and accomplished women from all corners of the globe. I hail you and your determination and energy to make life better for your communities and yourselves, as well as for those in faraway places.

thank you

sarvina -
i appreciate your welcoming post. i'm looking forward to learning more about you and about the other amazing women in our network. my life's work has been dedicated to the safety, health and education of children and women in my
country, the usa. sometimes i feel as though i'm so focused on the problems that face my country that i have to breathe deeply and give intense gratitude; no matter how difficult and challenging some of our issues are, i know how fortunate i am for the accident of birth that put me in such a democracy, which, thanks to pres. obama, is becoming more democratic month by month. gay rights and gay marriage are happening, abortion rights and immigration reform are
in the air, assaults against women (and men) in the military are much less tolerated, and health care for all is taking place. yes, we have problems and corruption in our government, but changes will come, bipartisanism is weakening.
i learn, read and hear about similar changes in africa, asia, south america and other corners where women like you stand up to discrimination, and i congratulate you for your courage and efforts. oh, how i wish the mongers of power and greed could get it, could relinquish their holds for the betterment of their people and global society! but authorities like assad, morsi and kim jong un feel invulnerable. my prayer is that women like aung san in burma will be heard and become leaders of a free world. enough for now; it's very late at night and even though i could go on and on, i feel i've
said my piece. i look forward to hearing/reading many comments from women like you. my best regards, martina
