What World Pulse Means to Me

Tamarack Verrall
Posted January 25, 2019 from Canada

World Pulse means everything to me. This is because freedom from violence and suppression of women and girls across this planet means everything to me. For years I have been working in my country to stop the violence, only dreaming that this could be, might be, has to be global. When I opened this website I was astonished and thrilled to discover that World Pulse is and always has been built on women’s stories, stories from all over the world, stories of what we have been through, stories of what we are doing about it. By reading, I fast became so much more educated, and so deeply encouraged that we are truly everywhere working to make change happen. It took me awhile before I realized to my astonishment that I could become a member! And an Encourager. I became both on the same day. This has kept me reading regularly, and by responding to stories, joining in on a monumental internal discussion filled with a precious and powerful web of public and private discussions, brainstorming, collaborating and simply loving, cherishing and celebrating each other, and celebrating our chance to know each other through this Site. World Pulse has broadened my thinking of what is possible. It has given me the chance to work globally and it has strengthened my voice locally and nationally. It has inspired me to work in bigger ways and with more optimism that truly, now is our time, and we are here to do this in our lifetime. Through World Pulse, we now have each other, and we are powerful in ways we have always known down deep to be possible. Let's keep weaving this web. World Pulse I cannot feel the edges of the depth of my gratitude.

Thanks, my younger sister, I am so very glad to be here! It took me awhile to realize that I could be a member and a Listener. But yes, when it comes to changing the situation of women and girls on this planet I certainly do mean business! I am so glad we have met here and can work on this together.
Sending love and a hug,
Tam

My dearest Tam,

World Pulse would be so lost without your voice, love and support! I'm so glad you not only came across World Pulse, but joined and became such an active member. So many sisters have benefited from your sage advice; myself included. And, yes, NOW IS OUR TIME!!!!

Hello lovely dear,

Me, too:-) Aw, thank you! You really do have such a wonderful gift... well, loads, but the first two that pop to mind are: making people feel wonderful and special (as I can see by all the comments below), and also being able to write so beautifully.

Hope you have a fab week, dear:-)
