Rotarian Doug Martin Sturomski discusses the Worldwide Peace Bells Foundation and the work it does to promote peace. Mr. Sturomski believes strongly in Rotary’s message of achieving peace through service. His Peace Bells across the Hudson this year, where symbolically people on two sides of the bridge will meet in the middle, is a fund raiser supporting Family Promise, a non-profit organization that helps families in economic distress. Discussing the historical significance of the bell symbol in most countries around the world, Mr. Sturomski shares his belief that “peace is on the move” and will soon overshadow the preference for conflict. His website asks visitors to commit acts of peace and gives many examples of how to do so.
