Back to the Alamo
Master Masons and their guests met at the Scottish Rite Cathedral a couple of blocks away from the Alamo in their aprons. When M: W: Rodgers arrived he was sure to introduce himself to every man in the room. To me this was refreshing as in the past and at other Masonic events the Grand Master has a tendency to cordon himself off from the general public and surrounds himself with his advisers or other Grand Officers. I have met M: W: Rodgers twice before tonight, but every time he is friendly and out going.
It felt good to sit in the Alamo again, it felt good after all this time, and after all that has changed. If any Mason has a chance to participate in this event I would seriously consider it, I am not from Texas and what locals colorfully refer to as a "transplant". Still as a man, a combat veteran and a Mason it was inspiring being in a place surrounded by my brethren.
