RC Johannesburg & PEACE & CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Updated: Jul 14

We are excited about our collaboration -www.PEACE-PIPE-proposal.com- with Rotary Club Johannesburg and “100 Community Mediators for Africa”.

Today, Grace van Zyl became the club’s president. (She will be a speaker at Northfield’s “Vergangenheitsbewaeltigung – Conference”, Oct. ’21; [German for; 'process of coming to terms with one's past'].) The event was live-streamed on Facebook www.facebook.com/RoCJHB/


Rotary Club JHB was founded 1931 - first RC in Africa; its answer to the PEACE-PIPE letter is moving. (1932 - published, p. 301/2 in: DIE PEACE-PIPE-BRIEFE, 1931/32 & 2019, www.peace-pipe-proposal.com/the-book )


The question that confronts us today is the same as in 1931-32: Do our leaders have the capacity to reach beyond their grasp, to challenge us to seek the higher angels of nature, to choose "Be informed! Be informed!" rather than "Be afraid! Be afraid!" In the end, however, we know that world peace is too important to be left in the hands of our leaders. Peace starts in our own back yards when we speak our for understanding when their is disharmony, food security where there is hunger, health care where there is disease, education where there is illiteracy, conservation where there is environmental harm, sustainable development where there is poverty ... and when we write letters across border to build goodwill and better friendships. - William Tubbs (2019)
