Most of us have been taught a value system we believed to be true from childhood on. Some of these value systems are based on culture, faith. family, friends, community. law, education and more. When we reach the teenage years we then face the challenges on this and at times are in conflict.
Then in young adult or some years after a new set of values can come into place and we start a new type of education either at college , university, volunteering or work and maybe raising a family. all of this adds to our experience and how we formulate our ideas and opinions and develop our own value system, With some ideas borrowed from the ones from childhood
As the we grow older and have enough experience our ideas evolve as does the world around us. Our priorities change and we can connect with a larger community, the world community and live unselfish lives.
I feel that World pulse is the opportunity to connect to the world community and evolve with others, learn and grow and influence the world around us. We can also develop a value system that is shared collectively.

The digital media through world pulse has touched my life and the lives of many others and has created opportuniites for people to be informed and have their voices heard.

That is how it works

Values Vision

Dear Diane,

I love this idea that you have expressed here about our ability to create an additional value system together here at World Pulse and throughout the world. You are so right! A value system can be deepened and broadened throughout life, and if we take our experience at World Pulse and apply it in such a way, our commitment to this cause can become amplified. I like thinking about it this way, and it helps me explain what I love so much about World Pulse. Thank you for your insights!

Thank you for this thoughtful back drop and underpinnings of any effort to improve communication. It may speak tot the need to develop a values statement as a part of world pulse efforts to bring digital access to more women.

Hi Diane,
Yes we are all on a path of evolution as individuals who are part of the whole, as communities, and as a larger global community. Each of us has our part to play in the collective evolution and we bring our own insights, values, and all of who we are to the mix. Caring for each other in the many ways we have in front of us every day, is a very good place to start. Each act of kindness and unselfishness impacts the larger world. Thank you for bringing this forward and for speaking to the way that World Pulse brings us together as women across the globe.

My very best to you.
