我以安妮佛蘭克的話來確確實實地來回答〝我為何會成為一位扶輪社員〞的問題。

This quote from Anne Frank really answers for me the question: “Why I Am A Rotarian”.

這是多麼的奇妙,因為沒有人需要等待一個時機才會開始改善這個世界。

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."

-安妮佛蘭克(1929-1945),一位德國猶太女孩並是一本撰寫她的家庭在二次世界大戰期間躲藏的日記的作者。 

- Anne Frank (1929-1945), a German Jewish girl and author of a diary of her family's two years in hiding during World War II.

這是安妮佛蘭克攝於1942年五月。再過幾個星期是她的13歲生日。她得到一本日記的生日禮物。她立刻開始寫日記。在第一頁寫著:〝我希望我能透露未曾透露給任何人的每件事給你們,並期盼你們是一個重要的撫慰與支援的資源。〞

This is Anne Frank in May 1942. In a few weeks it would be her thirteenth birthday. She was given a diary as a birthday present. She began to write in it straight away. On the first page she wrote: ‘I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.’
