Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the
Rotary E-Club of One World!
In the spirit of Rotary which binds us together to serve above self for the betterment of humanity and the world, let us share the Rotary Four Way Test of the Things we think, say or do; for which in District 5240 (D5240), a fifth has been added:
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concern?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concern?
  5. Is it FUN?

We are in the second week of May but permit me to take us back to April.  April, 2019 was a particularly difficult month not only for me personally but for our President Elect Ozlem Kocanaogullari, who reside in Izmir, Turkey who sadly lost her father in a very painful way.  Let us all spend a minute or two to console PE Ozlem and by extension her family and pray with them to be able to handle this situation well.
On behalf of your family in the Rotary E-Club of One World and on my own behalf, accept our heartfelt condolences and may the Almighty God grant you and the entire family the strength to go through this difficult moment.
In other news, Rotarian Nii Commey Otoo, in trying to plant trees around his home, cut his palms with the machete he was using and almost rendered his right palm useless (eleven stitches in the palm).  He is currently home and unable to do much with the hand and expected to be home for awhile for the wound to heal.
Between 5th and 12th April, I lost 4 very close family members and shuttling between my place of work and my hometown (over 700 kms) was no joke at all. But in all we thank God for the strength and resilience to move on.
Let us all strive to be each other’s keeper as accidents and incidents are not exclusive to a few. We are all fallible and all of us must take care in our daily routines as age catches up with all of us.
Next week we will come up with an even more interesting program, let us all endeavor to attend and register for our meeting.
Let’s all continue to BE THE INSPIRATION!!!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Amina Sammo
