I attended two graduation ceremonies during the past week. One was for my 13 year old granddaughter as she moved to high school from middle school and another was for my 18 year old granddaughter as she graduated from high school. During one of those ceremonies the Rotary International 4-Way Test was mentioned as being inspirational and helpful for life. The 4-Way Test is...
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all Concerned?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
All very admirable indeed. And then I thought about all of the candidates for leadership roles in our government. Okay, what wrong with that picture? I imagine that every candidate is a member. How could they pass up a chance to schmooze with a pack of businessmen? Think Romney; he has to be a member! Has he passed even one part of the Test? Of course not...
Rotary International should purge their membership roles of any candidate/member that hasn't followed the Test. If not, then we know exactly how hollow this 4-Way Test really is.
