When there is turmoil swirling around us,
Let us be the calm.
When the world is dark and full of fear,
let us bring the light of dawn.
When voices shout and conflict reigns,
Let us be there for relief.
When hope is needed everywhere,
Let us raise a voice for peace.
While we wait
impatiently for the weather to turn,
let us think spring thoughts.
Let us think about our President-Elect preparing to take the reins of our club.
Let us think about our club goals and the role each of us plays to make the world
a better place through our involvement in Rotary.
Let us think about opportunities to serve in new ways.
Let us be thankful for the food and the friends around this table.
Let us be thankful that spring will come
