Looking around World Pulse, I see so many changes in the people here, that I can come to see a day when our world changes for the better because of places like this. I want the world we imagine to come to life.

It's frustrating to me, because I am impatient, that change takes time. In my mind, I can see everything so clearly that sometimes I get out of bed am surprised that it hasn't happened yet, hah ha. I guess it's just the vision needs to plant it's roots before it can grow.
I guess a challenge for me is to appreciate growth, not just what we don't have yet, as one lady posted.

Looking around, I see so much happening that I want to get going right away, and trip over myself in the process. Though, through this grassroots community, I can get the wisdom of those around me, thankfully. To join hands with the other woman in making it happen, instead of just watching it.

Well, I'm done now, Signing off...

I know what you mean!

Sometimes I dream that the changes I hope for happened and then, feel frustrated when I wake up and everything is the same. But I do believe that slowly and surely, the changes will occur because the women here wont stand still or be silent. Like you, I become impatient and wonder why the rest of the world does not see the injustices we see but with the support and encouragement of this community, I see a wave of activism that is leading to laws being changed and lives transformed. And you, wonderful you, are a part of that wave.
