I joined freemasonry to help others less fortunate and in some
cases more fortunate than myself. I have found that people are
afraid of things they don't understand but in order to understand
you have to have someone willing to explain and support you
through your quest for knowledge.
As a child the masons in my area were an older group, always
together, but very very approachable. They were willing to sit
and talk to young people about anything from the BIBLE to work.
They never forced any of their beliefs or knowledge on anybody,
but it was there for the taking if you wanted it.
My father was a MASON, did i do it for him NO, my grandfather was
a MASON did i do it for him, NO.
I did it for myself as well as all the people out there (young and
old) who need that special someone, to talk to, to fix there
house, or to help them with their homework.
We are a group of very intellectual and spiritual men, who realize
the gifts that god has given. I (we) am just trying to give
things back that i have recieved.
Freemasonry is not a religion, it is not a Fraternity like alot of
people think, it is in every dark corner of every man, they just
have to learn to see the LIGHT.
I am Freemasonry as well as every brother out there. I have
always been a mason i just never knew it, now that i know it i
benefit from it, at home, at work, evrerywhere.
I would like to thank those older gentlemen for keeping masonry
pure and letting me learn when my time was right.
I believe my life has changed for the better and wish everybody
who is interested in it to please don't do it for anybody or
anything except for self gratification and because you truly care,
you care about yourself, your family, and your fellow man.
Remember masonry makes a good man a better man.
