isn't always fair but we can strive....

Supreme Court Justice Sharon Kennedy was the speaker at Rotary today. And once again I was reminded of why I benefit from being a Rotarian.  Joe went with me to my father's Rotary Club meeting in March was struck by The Four Way Test. We talk about it with our kids and integrate it into our lives on Newark-Granville Road.  Although the Granville Leithausers know "life isn't always fair" they know things work out and we think before we act and consider bascially these same ideas.

Today Justice Kennedy related her first interaction with this same important instrument for the international service organization and talked about how it relates to our country's rich heritage and alignment to our forefather's plan for our government. Here is the four way test that you too can bring in to your lives.  If your interested in joining me for a Rotary meeting- Tuesdays at noon downtown Newark please let me know- I'd love to share these guiding questions in person with you.

Rotary Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do:
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

And here is also a link to learn more about Justice Sharon Kennedy- she was impressive- if you have the chance to meet her in person and hear her perspectives- please do- this is the 2nd time I've had the privilege and I'm grateful.
