Being A Square Peg In A Round Hole

It's not always easy to do the right thing, especially in a world that doesn't seem to have many values left.  Part of what being a Freemason is about is holding ourselves to a higher standard--to be an example when everyone else around us is behaving badly.  And it's not easy. 

It's being the one person in the room willing to say what everyone else is thinking.  It is giving an honest answer when asked a question, even if makes us look bad.  It's saying you're sorry even if you didn't do anything wrong.  It's being able to forgive people no matter what they've done to you.  It's saying nothing when somebody else takes the credit for something you've done.

Being a Freemason isn't about carrying a card in your wallet, or wearing a ring, or going to a meeting every month.  It's about being a good example--even when nobody is watching.
