Crazy times.  Strife, tension, hate, worldwide diseases, water shortages, desperate economies, violence....not at all a peaceful state for all earthlings.  Rotary answers the call to action with Peace Initiatives including Peace Scholars and Peace Centres around the world. 
Joining us at Rotary last Wednesday, was Past District Governor Chris Offer.  Chris is a member of the Rotary Club of Ladner, a member of the Rotary Peace Centers Committee of The Rotary Foundation and past chair of the Rotary Peace Major Gifts Initiatives committee.  Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops the capacity of peace and development professionals or practitioners to become experienced and effective catalysts for peace.
The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.  Since the program began in 2002, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,300 fellows who now work in more than 115 countries. Many serve as leaders in governments, NGOs, the military, education, law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank. 
How can we participate?  Nominate a Peace Fellow.  Somebody you may know, may have the experience and capacity to be such a catalyst for peace.  Imagine, if you will, a world at peace.
