Women in the Media will Rule…Softly but Strongly

The Western Woman will lead the world home……. to sanity. She will do it first by talking around the kitchen table with other awakening women. As they share and speak there will be a growing sense of how far things have wandered from truth and goodness and then they will decide they have to do something. They will hold a circle, then a gathering. And then they will go out to speak to an authority for change. Guess what? The women will sit at the tables of “the authorities” at first.
