Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!
 
 
 
 
 
I hope this message finds you well.
 
We are shaken by bad news coming from all over the world, forest fires in California, protests in Chile, there is always an old or a new war going on in Middle East.  And then there are smaller catastrophes that we hear about, one usually that could almost always have been prevented: a child being neglected, a woman being beaten to death by her husband.  Today I have heard on the news that a family of four siblings, two sisters and two brothers aged between 40 to 60, living together in Istanbul decided to take their own lives. For the reason that they simply could not bear living in debt anymore.  They owed money for rent, for power and for food.
 
It saddens me deeply that we live so oblivious to the horrors and pains of others, sometimes even the ones so close to us.  I realize that it is not possible to be the solution of all of the problems of the world.  But it is possible to act in kindness to every single soul you encounter throughout the day.  Kindness, understanding and compassion are the easiest and simplest things you can give to another person.  They are the only things that can multiply as you continue to give away.
 
Dear members, we will be hosting our DG Savi Bhim for a Zoom meeting on November 23rd 2019. Details and the link can be found here.  I will be delighted to see you at that meeting.
 
Have a wonderful weekend.
 
Yours in Rotary,
Ozlem

Foundation Month Focus
Peace and Conflict Resolution
 

As Rotary nears completion of its goal of eradicating polio, many have asked “what's next?” Where will the incredible talent and resources of Rotary be directed now?  The challenge that has in recent years risen to the forefront is that of increasing peace and resolving conflict.

For many, the pursuit of Peace (with a capital P) seems amorphous, hard to get one’s arms around, difficult to know where to start and what exactly to do. The challenge of eradicating polio must have seemed equally daunting when the End Polio Now campaign began, but that didn’t stop determined Rotarians. And that same determination can be used to promote peace and resolve conflicts. The key in this, as it was in the fight against polio, is to enlist able partners and bring our resources to bear on the effort.

 

This emphasis on Peace is not new. It dates back to 1917 when Paul Harris said:

"It is easier to interest men in war than in peace; it therefore requires more moral courage to talk peace than war."
