As a young man I noticed that a lot of my teachers and college instructors wore rings and some of them even had the sticker on the backs of their cars and trucks. I never really inquired untill I had a close call that resulted in one of my teachers who is a Mason come to my rescue. That's when I saw the ring and asked about what its the meaning.

After being enlightened, it then became clear to me that the life that he was living was of good standing because he was a Mason and the light that he had shines so bright that you could see it from far off.

When I was initiated as an Entered Apprentice, then moved on to Fellow Craft everything is now beginning to fall into place as to what being an upright man is supposed to be. Now just some days shy of Master Mason, I can be sure that there is divinity in the craft and that any man who wants to live as an individual of good character, Freemasonry is always a good road to take.

It is what i call making a good man better.
