New York Rotary's Response to 9/11: The Magic of Rotary (aired Jan. 8, 2010)

Fellow Rotarians,

 

We are keeping touch with each other to face this traumatic situation in a meaningful way.

 

We have contacted Rotary International and President Richard King has written to all of his district governors worldwide, and posted an open letter on the RI website expressing his feelings and those of Rotary.

 

What we can do right now is help our neighbors and help each other in any way possible.

This country has gone through two World Wars. We will handle this also.

 

Keep the faith,

 

Your President Helen

Dear Jack Selway,

Certainly, the NY tragedies were much more catastrophic and graphic. Had the fourth plane not gone done in Pennsylvania, DC might have looked much worse.

At this point, only one of our members from the Pentagon is unaccounted for, though it's not likely he was in the devastated part of the building. In the midst of the confusion, I canceled this week's meeting as it was not clear whether the Secret Service would let us into the hotel. As it turned out, they have posted guards around the area, but they are allowing un-restricted travel.

Even with our membership intact, we have all lost friends and colleagues. Thank you for your kind thoughts.

Tim Hanson

President, Rotary Club of Washington, DC
