There are 15-20 million polio survivors in our world.  And 60-75% are subject to having Post Polio Syndrome.
 
Trouble Years Later - According to the diagnostic criteria developed by the March of Dimes, Post polio Syndrome is new muscle weakness or decreased endurance that occurs in people with a history of paralytic polio, after partial or complete recovery from the infection and a long interval — typically 15 to 30 years — of stable functioning. The weakness comes on gradually, persists for at least a year, progresses slowly, and can be accompanied by fatigue, muscle wasting, and muscle and joint pain. Some patients also develop sleeping problems, breathing problems, and difficulty swallowing.

 We celebrate Rotary’s 117th birthday on 23 February and we focus on Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution all February long.  Therefore, I invite you to consider two ways of advancing peace and world understanding in these challenging times, globally and domestically. The challenges are great yet our capacity as Rotarians is even greater.  So, what can we do?
Congratulations to Kayla Christianson, District Governor for the 2021-2022 Rotary Year.

Rotary International Statement 

It is a tragic and sad time for the people of Ukraine and the world.
 
At Rotary, we are deeply concerned by the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the escalating loss of life and humanitarian hardship there.  Continued military action against Ukraine will not only devastate the region, but also risk spreading tragic consequences across Europe and the world.
 
As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission.  We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease fire, withdrawal of Russian forces, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue. 
 
In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peace-building projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence. Today, our thoughts are with our fellow Rotary members and others in Ukraine coping with these tragic events. Rotary International will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region. 
At Rotary we celebrate and promote diversity.
