Peace invocation

Shawn L. Bird

Eleanor Roosevelt said,

It isn’t enough to talk about peace, one must believe it. 
    And it isn’t enough to to believe in it, one must work for it.

Today, as we consider our role as Rotarians in our community, let us remember that while we work on local and international projects, we are working for peace. 

 We must promote peace with our words and in our daily decisions.  There can be no peace in the world if there is no peace in ourselves.  When we, as a world of Rotarians at all levels of society, reflect our conscientious desire to promote peace, we embrace this belief.  Peace will be possible. 

First ourselves.  Next our club.  Then the world.
