President’s Message from Dotty Cline

“Imagine Many Paths of Peace”

“Imagine Many Paths of Peace” is the theme I have chosen for this year as I serve as president of our WE Rotary Club of International Peace. Rotary International President Jennifer Jones’ theme, “Imagine Rotary,” inspired me to think about our club and how we might imagine us. We are people from different countries and even different areas within our countries. We are proud to call ourselves an “international” club brought together by a common word: peace. Peace may mean different things to each of us, as there are many definitions of peace that include ideas of personal peace, peace between people, and peace between countries, an absence of war. Each of us has committed to a path of peace. At first I thought of paths to peace, but as I know our members better, I see we are on paths of peace–“of” meaning “belonging to,” “with,” and “concerning.” This describes our members–moving through lives on paths of peace. Join me this year in learning more about the paths of peace each of us has chosen. Are there more paths we have yet to imagine? Let’s imagine many paths of peace!

Aloha, Dotty
