Voice and communication on Pulsewire

I wanted to re-post a comment I had written on someone's journal entry, because I feel it is an important thought to keep in mind. Thanks to Gack for the inspiration:

...I have made a career out of language and communication. This is a safe place to speak opinions, be heard, encourage and be encouraged. I have personally found this to be true, even if there is a difference of opinion, of culture, of vision. Although the written word is beyond compare, as a verbal and gestural communicator, it is a challenge for me to accurately impart mood, tone, sincerity or humor. Knowing this, as I read through various types of entries and comments, I do try to read beyond the words to hear the voice behind them.

Yes, let us be the example and show the way through word and action, keeping a forward-thinking voice, withholding judgement or criticism. Let us also see beyond the voice to the authenticity and heart.

Thank you for bringing these thoughts forward, and for taking part in this ever-growing, ever-changing community!

With gratitude, and with
Peace and Hope-

Michelle
