Why did you become a Freemason?

Subject: Why I Joined Freemasonry
I actually just received my Entered Apprentice Degree at Gunnison
Valley Lodge #39 in Gunnison, Colorado. I'm going for my Fellow Craft
in 2 weeks. I can't wait. No one in my family was ever a Freemason
that I know of, except for my Great Grandfather. He passed away before
I was born. Becoming a Mason was something I did on my own
Once I had learned of it, I studied it for a while before petitioning
a Lodge. I was really impressed by the Brotherly conduct, and the
fellowship as well as the selfless efforts and charities that the
Fraternity provides. It's also an amazing feeling to be a part of
something that so many great thinkers and historical figures before me
were also a part of. I took the same oath that millions of likeminded
men have taken for hundreds of years.
I have always been a little shy and backwards, and I believe that
through Masonry and the support of my Bretheren, I can break out of that
shell, and also become a better man. I don't think there is a greater
Institution in the world.
