An Antidote to Fear and Hate

The formula 'Fear + Hate = Power' reflects a manipulative tactic often seen in today's world, where power is built on division and discord. But there exists a better equation: 'Courage + Vision = Leadership', which fosters unity, progress, and inspiration.

In the first equation, fear immobilizes people while hate provides a common enemy, creating a shaky foundation for power. In the alternative equation, courage confronts fear and challenges head-on, creating trust and admiration. Vision, on the other hand, imagines a better future, fostering innovation and motivation.

Unlike power derived from fear and hate, leadership based on courage and vision unifies people, guides them towards a shared goal, and nurtures a culture of collaboration and shared success. In a world increasingly divided, it’s essential to embrace this antidote, replacing division with unity, fear and hate with courage and vision, transforming manipulative power into constructive leadership.

Rotary exemplifies the principles of Courage, Vision and Leadership on a global scale.

Rotary's courage is evident in its commitment to tackle complex and difficult challenges. The organization's concerted global effort to eradicate polio, a debilitating and potentially deadly disease, demonstrates this courage. Facing logistical, cultural, and geographical obstacles, Rotary has persisted in this battle, demonstrating courage in the face of adversity.

The vision of Rotary is also crystal clear, envisioning a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in communities, and in themselves. This vision is translated into reality through our projects and initiatives focused on promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, supporting education, and growing local economies.

The combination of courage and vision at Rotary has led to transformative leadership, from the community level to the international stage. Rotarians are leaders who act with a shared purpose of serving humanity and making a difference. This leadership not only inspires its members but also influences communities and the world at large.

It's a testament to the positive and transformative power of leadership grounded in courage and vision.
