PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Promoting Peace Through Understanding

Ron Clark shared with us some great tools to connect with our youth last week! Hear them, discipline them, encourage them, tell them (and yourself) to “Suck It Up” sometimes and most of all LOVE them. I hope you were inspired to engage a young person and share what you learned from Ron this week (don’t forget to put your name in the I Shared IT! box). Go visit Ron Clark Academy! Encourage a teacher! Inspire a kid! Let me know if you need help getting involved with our kids!

You may not know that I have played the piano most of my life. For me, playing gives me inner peace. As you probably know, promoting peace is one of Rotary’s dearest causes. In a world full of conflict and violence, Rotary refuses to accept conflict as a way of life. Conflict and violence displace millions of people each year. Half of those killed in conflict are children and 90 percent are civilians. Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. Roswell Rotary seeks to promote peace through understanding through our leadership in GRSP, Lunches for Learning, End Human Trafficking and Be THE Voice. Malek Jandali, our speaker this week, combines his gift as a world-renown pianist and his desire for peace and will share his story and his music with us so that we may better understand the importance of promoting peace around the world, in our community and in our own lives. Join me on Thursday with an open mind and an open heart for what I know will be an inspirational meeting.

President Becky
