    Brothers, the night each one of us was raised was filled with overwhelming feelings and emotions. Should you be able to gather the words to describe and express your individual experience...please share it if you wish.

    I felt that it was deeply meaningful and that it would take a while to sort through the first few levels of meaning. Twenty years later I'm still sorting through level after level of meaning.

    Elation is the word that comes to mind right now. I felt like I was in another Plane of Existence. Every time I think back on the events of that evening, I am somewhat transported.

    Humility is the first word that came to mind.
    I felt as if my ego remained buried in that rubble at MM.

    That I should be faithful to my oath out of honest responsibility
    Cause life seemed deferent
    You see things differently
    In a deferent shades and shapes and inner meaning
    It was marvelous
    And it goes hand in hand with you for eternity

    I echo what nayef said. Given how I saw the world differently after my EA and FC, I wondered how my experience being raised would shade my world views differently. And it most certainly has.

    Every time I witness a Brother being raised, I reflect back on the night I was raised...The emotions and feelings return

    Having been Raised last night it is still fresh in my mind. I'm still in awe and elated. Awe and Humility are the closest I can describe how I felt. I was honored to have had The Cowboy Degree Team conduct the 2nd part.
