Much of what is said in this book is the legacy of what the founder of Rotary International said or was literally picked up during his readings in the various conferences that Paul Harris performed throughout his life. It is an extraction from the book Honoring our Past: the words and wisdom of Paul Harris. Having said this, we draw our own reflections and expanded the concepts in good faith trying to follow the path and Rotary philosophy of our Founder.
Those who are part of this project called Rotary play a leading role in this epic endeavour that we undertake to overcome inequalities in a world of need. As a result, all Rotarians feel proud when these goals are achieved in the face of understandable difficulties. Rotary and its activities have undoubtedly changed and continue to change its image to the world. The engine of sacrifice and friendship that we have always encouraged at Rotary is a powerful force that is very difficult to stop.
In current times, we cannot overlook the fact that in society, public authorities and governments in general do not satisfy or alleviate those needs, and consequently, Rotary plays a key role as a tool to contribute to the welfare of the less fortunate.
We must all make an effort to change some of our behaviour. With today’s modern technology, such as social networks, we are increasingly becoming interconnected and well informed. They provide an excellent means by which to proclaim from the rooftops the true and ethical path that society must take and follow.
In particular, we must put aside any signs of arrogance that prevents us from conversing with humility to people about their everyday lives, which are often harsh and dramatic.
