As we begin this new Lions year I greet you in the way our International President Naresh Aggarwal constantly greeted all present at the Chicago International Lions Convention as-Namaste. This one simple word has such a very deep and powerful meaning. It means “the divine in me salutes the divine in you”. It is an expression that resonates with us as Lions because every day we are utilizing our divine power to encourage, assist and provide for those in need and less fortunate than ourselves. We are providing psychological air to those in need which salutes their divine spirit. We need more members who, with very little investment of time, can make a difference to another person’s soul. To have touched a person’s soul is to have walked on holy ground. I invite you to become a Lion and help shape a better world for all. Ron Gattone
