Brethren, I am sorry to say I have recently been feeling down. I am always happy and proud of my masonic membership. But recently I have been persecuted and singled out by some college professors as well a students on campus, they are absolutely disgusted about my masonic membership. I am a Master Mason. I try to apply all my "working tools" in dealing with others but it has finally taken its toll. I've been told by brethren and friends that I have been less positive and less kind. earlier to day I looked at my masonic ring I wear with sadness I feel like I let down the fraternity.
