Lord, the fonder of Buddhism once said, “This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds.”
And yet, it is long enough to create some good! Think of the good that Paul Harris did when he and three friends founded Rotary. Think of the many projects worldwide that 28,000 Rotary Clubs have sponsored, year after year, to help their fellow man, all in the interest of spreading good will and peace throughout the world.
Let not the autumn clouds discourage us from our noble purpose. For it is only we, Lord, with your help, who can fulfill our noble purpose.
