the song that we must all sing

My voice is powerful, interesting, humble, humorous, soul-searching, and life changing.

I want to be a correspondent because I refuse to accept conditions that trample on other people’s rights as they exist. We all have a part to play in the world and being a correspondent enhances my chances of changing unfair and unjust conditions.
It will also shape my voice so that it whistles, sings, croons, and trumpet and belt out, without fear or favour the concerns of girls in my community. It will also join my harmony with that of others and together our melody will be heard worldwide. The voices of truth, peace justice restoration equality love and unity churning out a beautiful sound as together we create the world we want.

Honest, strong, solutions-based journalism will help my community to realise their potential, get accurate, timely information. Be educated and make informed decisions. In addition it will help everyone reflect and aim for a better Zimbabwe and world where gender bias and marginalization of vulnerable groups is stopped at all levels of society. It will empower women to participate economically, politically and take up decision making positions. Last but not least it will engage men for better families, communities and countries.

Comments

Your passion shines through as you describe the potential for women to come together and blend their voices for a better community and world. You make excellent points about how important it is to tell stories with factual and timely information.

Your vision for a better world will add strength to everything you do as a Correspondent, just as it adds strength to your roles as a teacher, mother and wife. Please know how supported you are as you move forward in this process. The world is a better place because of your voice.

Soul music :)

You've reached my soul with this statement... I'm warming up in order to be part of your music sheet!
As Deb wrote earlier today - do know how supported you are along this road.

"It will empower women to participate economically, politically and take up decision making positions". I'm positive about this goal, as we're sisters in it.

Warmly,
San

Your novel!

Dear Pela, Did you ever see my comment regarding The Day the Women Sat in the Chairs? I think you have a brilliant start on a brilliant novel with that piece. Since I first read it (and I've re-read it several times) I've been thinking about how easily it could be turned into a beautiful book! I'd love to share my ideas with you. Interested? janapotter@comcast.net

You portray a very positive message of what we are doing here as part of correspondents of VOF.

Humility is a virtue and when that is complimented with a strong compassionate voice, anything can be moved :)

I wish you all the best Pela.

I did not see "The Day the Women Sat in the Chairs." I'm sorry that I didn't. I see that another friend has suggested making it into a book. I have helped other authors get their work into print. If I can assist in this effort with you, please let me know.
