I'm A Newly Raised Master Mason.
I joined the Masons because both my Grandfathers were Masons and they were two of the best men I've ever known.
I strive everyday to show the same love, compassion, and understanding for humanity that they did.
Becoming a Mason is the best decision I have ever made, the fellowship with my brothers and knowing I'm a part of something bigger than myself gives me such a good feeling, just to know that our organization is the most charitable and oldest fraternity in the world is awesome.
To anybody who might read this and is thinking about petitioning your local lodge, take the plunge and do it, you will have things in life you regret, but Masonry isn't one of them.
