LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Our members join Rotary to make a difference through service and to build lifelong friendships. Rotary offers many opportunities to do this...
Patience is a complex set of virtues, including self-control, humility, generosity, tolerance, mercy, and it is an essential aspect of other areas like hope, faith, and love. Patience is a paradigm of the ancient notion of the unity of the virtues. As we all know, the opposite of patience is impatience. It is defined as "irritability or restlessness." Simply said, impatience can be viewed as a rejection of the present moment because we feel it should be replaced by something else. It simply is a rejection of the current reality.
