Thank you for joining PulseWire. Your journal raises some interesting issues, and I would love to hear more about your insights and experiences with human rights abuses in America. In the United States, we tend to think of human rights abuse as an international issue and forget to look in our own backyard. You might be interested in connecting with our new member, OjibwayMigisi, who can be found at She is active in indigenous people's rights and issues, and I think you might have much to talk about.

Please take a moment to post a photo of yourself or an image that best represents you. Also, I am so happy that you have joined our Voices of Our Future group and look forward to hearing more from you. You might want to browse through all of our community groups as it's a great way to build powerful networks, find members with similar interests to your own, share ideas or actions. With the group journal, you can brainstorm solutions, pose questions, test ideas and create a support network for your visions.

So welcome to PulseWire and I hope you find this to be a positive experience.
