    gratitude I have found myself spontaneously crying more in the past few days here than in the past few years combined It is completely wrong for any children on this earth to have to live this way and I have found myself angry with God as I struggle with it AIDS is a double whammy here and what Rotary and a few other orgs my wife s NGO www alarm inc org is another are doing here is powerful and at this point makes what I do for a living seem ridiculously insignificant Please PLEASE support this cause as I can not imagine a more significant place on this earth where it could be equally felt Dig deep and make a difference here and I can assure you that I will bring you back pictures that will cause you to know how worthy this is of your contribution Please if you can not make it to the auction tonight then make the basic contribution to be an RFFA member I am a fairly new Rotarian as you all know but one of the things that drew me to this amazing org was the hearts of the people in it For years our predecessors stood together to fight Polio and they were relentless This is the new war we are fighting As your fellow Rotarian I want to ask each of you to please become a RFFA member and give the small amount that is required of such I am sorry but I feel that if we can go to an amazing Rotary fundraiser like Vine and Dine that costs us 200 per couple then we can certainly put out 100 to stand with our fellow Rotarians over here working full time in this effort Could we please have 100 participation

    what to say The father was devastated and seemed lost for quite a few years thereafter When I contrast what Marion has done out of a tragedy compared to my friend I see that determined strategic activism is the direction that helps to heal and also saves others from the consequenses of this awful disease Marion is one of the most impressive Rotarians I have ever met She regularly visits where RFFA programs are benefitting young children who have been orphaned through HIV AIDS related issues Even though I have not met Reagan I truly think I know him as Marion has brought his story and the stories of so many others to us in such a vivid way Rotarian Action Groups such as RFFA can do so much working with cooperative partners and with Rotarians throughout the world Groups such as RFFA help the lives of kids and also serve as laboratories for effective action for much larger entities The work of Marion RFFA s partners and Rotarians enrich those we seek to help and also all of us as we learn to become more compassionate and more circumspect about our own station in life and the good grace

    with our mom Marion as a part of RFFA I wish my brothers could have seen my children grow up and that I could call them up for advice However I have hope that with the efforts of a world wide organization helping to fight AIDS that future advances will be made so that other families will not have to lose a family member to this disease as we did

    you and RFFA earlier when I was in Atlanta for the National Social Studies Conference back in November The clip showing Reagan expressing his dream to be a leader someday was touching especially as our current leader Barack Obama as a youngster expressed a similar wish to become a president in an essay to his third grade teacher President Obama is the subject of my two latest releases published by Pacific Heritage Books MEET PRESIDENT OBAMA America s 44th President ages 6 9 and BARACK OBAMA Historymaker ages 10 through adult recently honored with the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award As RFFA incorporates one of Rotary International s focuses literacy in its mission and seeks partners with community organizations and businesses to support the KIDZ Clubs I would like to relay the interest of Pacific Heritage Books in partnering with you to bring both books and perhaps some of its other children s titles to the clubs and the children they serve Because we are a small independent publisher we are unable to make large monetary donations but we would like to and can offer our quality publications to RFFA at a special courtesy discount so many children can enjoy them
