Subject: Why I Joined Freemasonry
To: masonry-ask@mit.edu

I am honored for the opportunity to say why I joined the masons. I grew up as a child with my Grandfather and Uncles being involved but never myself understood all that the fraternity stood for: I only know they were good men who kept their word and were totally accountable.

I am now 41 years old and have put-off becoming a Freemason for many years because of gossip and speculation of the uninformed and ignorant. When I took the step of becoming a mason, I found not only a Brotherhood of quality men who were like my Grandfather and Uncles, But I learned the speculative negative information I had heard for so many years were wrong.

It is a fraternity of God-fearing men who uphold truth and honesty and embrace wholesome standards for living.

I am only an Entered-apprentence at this point. My Master Mason ceremony is expected to be in April. I can only say that I have one regret... That is in waiting so long in joining this organization of quality men.

May God in his love and wisdom, keep us forever steadfast.
