27 May 2013 — Rotary Peace Forum #3, Hiroshima

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

A US Holiday weekend is no excuse to miss out on Rotary information, especially when the holiday is Memorial Day, dedicated to remembrance of those who gave their lives in military service to the nation, and the information is about the one thing every soldier wants the most: peace.

  1. Tough day to reflect on peace. Lot of movies showing war at its worst.most showed the waste such conflicts encourage and promote. Organized insanity.

  2. The Declaration has some profound statements, particularly about embracing your enemies, that support long term peace. President Tanaka made a bold move in hosting the Peace Forum in Hiroshima. Read the book Hiroshima by John Hersey and you’ll never again feel that war is us against them.
