Hello Fellow District 6450 Rotarians.
Today we celebrate World Polio Day….
Since Rotary took up the mantle of Polio Eradication in 1985 over 3 BILLION children have been vaccinated and over 19 MILLION children did not contract the disease. Why? Because Rotary made a pledge to the children of the world!
You are a SUPERHERO! The End Polio Now logo is our superhero badge of honor. No other organization anywhere in the WORLD has made such a pledge. Smallpox is eradicated. Polio will be next.
Our job is not done until Polio no longer exists in the world. Will it be hard? Will it cost enormous sums of money? Are we tired of the Polio campaign? The answers may be yes, however, the only reality that matters is that ROTARIANS DO NOT QUIT…WE DO NOT LEAVE A JOB FOR OTHERS….ROTARY MADE A PLEDGE TO THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD AND WE WILL NOT LET THEM DOWN!
