Subject: Why I Joined Freemasonry
At 29 I would have to consider myself a Renaissance Man. In fact I
was probably born 50 years to late. I love Big Band Music although
Sinatra is my hero. My frustration with those between the ages of 24
and 35 to become actively involved in the community of which they live.
By becoming a Masonic Brother I have the ability to grab onto a part of
history. A lost tradition in our society of joining a lodge and doing
our best to help our communities.
There is much to be learned and I want to embrace that knowledge.
Our society teaches us many things. It is when we open our eyes to our
history and continue with those traditions passed on from centuries ago
that we truly learn who we are.
I am eating up as much information as possible. There is so much to
learn and only time will reinforce that learning. Communities need
lodges and fraternities whether it be for men or women. We need to
continue with our traditions in order to create a better future.
Freemasonry is a bond and hopefully time will not disrupt that bond.
