Brother, My Brothers

ITS BEEN A LONG TIME

Forty-One Years …

Since the decision I made in my early teens

“Changed My Life Forever As A Man.”

In ways I never knew possible.

Unimaginable then.

Inexplainable now.

BETTER MEN WE ARE

Built For This World And Beyond …

Pledged to do Good.

Where have we gone?

To Nirvana … Our Good Brothers Rest In Eternal Peace.

SUB ROSA

We Are Quieted.

Perpetuated in relative antonymy we exist.

Reverent of the past.

Eternally optimistic of tomorrow.

KINDRED SPIRITS

Nurtured In Bonds.

Fraternal Love.

Love of Fraternity.

Once … Always … A Brother.

FOUR

Studious Young Men – W.R. Dann, A.H. Jackson, W.B. Jones, A.J. Wurts – Gathered In A Small Barn in New Haven, Connecticut.

Sunday, April 13, 1879.

To lay the foundation of The Society on the virtues of Tolerance, Scholarship, Social Grace and Citizenship.

Their Legacy Lives On … In The Lives And Memories of The Brethren Devout.

ITS BEEN A LONG TIME

One-Hundred And Forty Years Now …

Since the decision They made in their teens.

“Changed Our Lives Forever As Men.”

In ways they never knew possible.

Unimaginable then.

Inexplainable now.

BLESSED WE ARE

Consequens Umquam, Deessens Numquam

Under The Crescent.
