Welcome, Francie

We are so happy that you have joined PulseWire. We see our community as a garden being seeded every day, growing to unleash the vibrant blooms of each of our members. The collective light shines brightly, creating a warm environment for members to speak out and let their voices be heard. I hope you will be inspired to share with us some of your experiences, concerns, hopes and dreams as they may provide insight and inspiration for others in our community.

Please take a moment to post a photo of yourself or an image that best represents you. I also encourage you to browse through our group directory (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups) where you may find a group with similar interests to your own. Or, you may consider starting your own group where you can build a powerful network bringing together PulseWire members with similar visions who want to share ideas or actions. With the group journal, you can brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and create a support network for your visions.

Voices, such as your own, have transformed lives and I look forward to reading more from you. Again, welcome and thank you for joining PulseWire.
Janice
PulseWire Community Director
