Rotary Club of St. Louis – Club 11
Letter from the President September 9, 2021
Hello my fellow Rotarians! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and the fabulous weather.
This past weekend, we paused to reflect on the 20th anniversary of the 911 terrorist attack on the United States. As I watched the news programs on television, it reopened wounds that will never heal. The testimonies of the survivors who were directly involved in this nightmare were heart wrenching. The stories they told of their loved ones who lost their lives brought tears to my eyes.
Not only were innocent people killed, but the first-responders who risked their lives and lost their lives trying to save others reminded me of my friends in Rotary.
These brave people epitomized “Service Above Self!”
Remember to count your blessings and be thankful for your like-minded fellow Rotarians.
President Jack Windish
