Good evening dear Rotarians,
As we get ready to meet two fantastic cricketers online in less than an hour, it is my pleasure to share with you the 42nd issue of our Lighthouse.
As always, the outlook is one of hope and faith and we try not to be bowed down by the tragedies of our time these days. Our losses are real and the difficulties seemingly insurmountable, but inherent faith in human resilience says: Keep going, we will best this.
Cases are rising. Tragedy is hitting closer to home. Economy’s taken a nosedive. Fear is ever-present.
But! Amidst these hard times, are also heart-warming stories. Govts. taking a pledge to work together and getting to grassroots. Individuals forming cohesive teams and finding swift care solutions. Communities opening up their hearts, wallets and kitchens for those who need it. People caring for babies and pets of those Covid-affected. And Clubs like RCM launching ambitious and determined projects like our Vaccine Drive, to provide hope and care to the remotest parts of our states. We need to hear these stories. We need to quell the negative energy with our positive forces.
We must become a unified Phoenix.
We got this.
- Rtn. Shri Shakthi Girish
