My fellow Rotarians, people ask what is wrong with the world? A famous writer, G.K. Chesterton's answer was very short. He just said, I am. The world is dangerous, not because of those who do harm, but, because of those who look at it, without doing anything. Are you ready to make a real difference in the world around you?
The power to make a difference lies within each one of us. If our faith is strong and constant, our effort to make a difference will be more than what we ever thought possible. To make a difference does not mean, making a bog splash or doing something that makes people yell, “wow”. Some people proudly call it, “leaving a legacy.”
Making a difference is doing things differently. Are you willing to help a needy child, overcome the obstacles of poverty through a sponsorship? Have you ever thought of providing education to those children who are still out of school? Have you ever considered about those children who die each year from curable diseases, such as polio, diarrhea, malaria, and tuberculosis?
Mother Teresa was once asked, what is the secret of your success? Is it hard work, dedication, ability or discipline? She smiled and said, it is hard to say, but one thing I know, I love to serve, I love to give, and if you give yourself, life will give you back something to cherish. You can make a difference in the world.
If we can share the tears of the lowly, we will soften our hearts, wash our eyes, and clear our vision. They in turn will witness our selfless desire to be of help. Most of the have-nots are generally afraid to put their faiths in the offers of help, because many of them have an ulterior motive. They have selfish reasons to offer assistance. When they realize that Rotary is different, Rotary is serious, Rotary has no axe to grind, that Rotarians can share their tears and fears, then they would give total cooperation, untainted faith, and enthusiastic response. Therefore, never be afraid of the tears that you share with others. That is the best cleaning fluid ever.
Let us rise in the eyes of our communities by sharing your time, energy and resources and make them know, YES, Rotary is there. Rotary can make a difference in the world. Therefore, let your presence in the world, be one that shares and radiates love, and bring “Peace Through Service”.
