Extra Credit NOT REQUIRED BUT HIGHLY ENCOURAGED: World Pulse wants to foster your creativity and hear your voice through poetry! Poetry is a powerful way to paint a vivid picture for the reader. It offers ways to connect with people with very different lives and experiences than yours. The last reading for Week 2 Assignment was the poem titled The Soul of World Pulse. Our poem highlights our vision for the future and a call to action to connect with one another and engage in the revolution. We invite you to write a poem about your unique vision for your future and the larger global community. We are particularly interested in themes of overcoming and resilience. Poetry can come in many different forms. We are looking to hear your voice, poems that contain humor are also encourage. While this is NOT required and will not be evaluated, it allows us to explore a different writing avenue with you.
