Conflict and violence displace millions of people each year. Half of those killed in conflict are children, and 90 percent are civilians.

Rotary International President 2016-2017 John Germ introduces the theme for the new Rotary year.

Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
