A Rotarian's guide to Peace Through Service
Peace is more than the absence of conflict. It brings freedom, security, and happiness. It is the enemy of persecution and instability. It is central to Rotary's mission and a driving force in our efforts to eradicate polio across cultures and in areas of conflict. In July, RI President Sakuji Tanaka challenged every club member to build Peace Through Service. In response, Rotarians have initiated and bolstered projects, sponsored Rotary Peace Fellows, and organized peace forums. Global forums in Berlin, Honolulu and, this month, Hiroshima are bringing community leaders and club members together to evaluate Rotary's role in the path to lasting peace. In this issue, you'll find reflections from the president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, advice on finding the next peace fellow, and information about securing a global grant for a peace-building project. "In Rotary, our business is not profit," Tanaka says. "Our business is peace."
