Walk On

The Champions Who Walked Among Us

New Improvements Coming on My Blog, Walk On!


One of my greatest  joys has been watching my blog, Walk On, grow.  It is a blog, which reaches out to the past and connects it to the present, as we look forward  to the future.  I am a firm believer that nothing on this earth is new. What we discover, create, or develop  started somewhere in the past.

It is true, whether we want to accept it or not that we are connected to each other.   None of us live on a lonely island by ourselves. Progress, today, is the result of  what  people in the past have started or completed.  Would we have light bulbs,  if Edison had not been a great researcher, or would we have airplanes, if  the Wright brothers had not researched what others considered as impossible, or would women’s rights have come in 1920, if Abigail Adams had not made a plea to her husband for the rights of women and the Afro-Americans, or would women even be in Politics, if Sojourner Truth had not stood before an Ohio State Congress and gave her famous speech, Ain’t I A Woman?  Where would we all be if the men and women of the past had not  stepped up courageously and struggled to make a difference.

I know there are many men who made contributions to our world, and yet they remain  unknown,  but I have chosen to look at the women who were champions and walked among us––women, who were  unsung heroes. Thus, you will notice some changes in blog design and content.  I am introducing the first change, today.

Because of my specific interest in women who have made a difference in this world,  I have been searching for the suitable song that speaks out encouragement and supports my  heartfelt cry to all women, who are in the process of changing their lives, to Walk On.  The song that I found speaks to my heart. It is sung by Kellie Coffey.  She does a beautiful job of challenging all of us to Walk On!

The song will be posted  at the end of each blog posting to encourage you to keep going, and I sincerely hope it gives you as much courage as it gives me.

Walk On, My Sisters, I say Walk On!

Ciao,

Pat Garcia

  4. Some of your oldest blog posts don’t let one comment anymore. None of your blog posts have LIKE button. I’d love to see you add the LIKE button to your posts. I think you’ll be amazed at how good it makes you feel when people can stop by and LIKE your posts. It’s a form of affirmation, and I find it very valuable in this non-affirming world.

    • Hi,
      That has now been corrected, I hope and I will change the time settings on my blog commentary. Thanks for visiting. Your visit has helped me to learn WordPress more. Because of your visit, my blog is beginning to look cool.

    • Hi Russel
      You are so correct and I wrote you this morning after waking up and seeing your posts and corrected it immediately. I also want to thank you again, because your stopping by helped me a lot. I have the like button now on all of my posts and I also extended the commentaries on the post to up to six months but I will changed that again to a year.
      Once again, I want to say thank you. It is people like you who make me proud of being a writer. Your stopping by has given me a big boost for my writing.
      If you do not mind, would you please stop by once again and hit the like button. If you don’t see it, please let me know, because it is supposed to be on all of my posts now.
      Take care and have a great day.
      Ciao,
      Patricia
