Message from IP Aggarwal: Lions Stand Against Hate

My Dear Lions,

Like me, I’m sure you have followed the recent tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia and Barcelona, Spain. Acts of terror, and loss of innocent lives must never become the norm.

Lions International and its over 1.4 million members around the world stand for peace, unity, and service to others. For over 100 years we have upheld the principle that people of diverse backgrounds, cultures, religions and ideologies can work together to make a positive difference.

We are the example that where there is peace, there can be no hatred. Where there is love, there can be no hatred. Where there is understanding, there can be no hatred. And when there is no hatred, it is a better world for all.

We stand together as one against hate, bigotry and violence in all its forms.

And we pray for the victims of the recent attacks in Barcelona, Spain and Charlottesville, Virginia. May peace and love prevail.

Namaste,

Dr. Naresh Aggarwal

International President
