There is not a child in my classroom that does not know that I'm a Shriner what would this fraction right here be three tens if you love something that much you're gonna share it and I'm just fortunate enough I get to share it with 10 year olds every day I could tell you right now I have close to 2,000 men I could call right now and have them here if you need to that's a brotherhood and in my mind I saw firsthand the brotherly love and assistance that the shrine can offer probably about 10 minutes away from home and my sister-in-law called my wife and they were talking going on and she said your house is on fire

We got there about 30 minutes before everything was gone I mean we literally had what we had on is all we had to our name I'm sorry it's hard to put that in words um it's one of those things where there's numbness that was a real tragic point in our lives finally I looked down at my phone and I had almost a hundred either phone calls or text messages or emails on my phone looking at probably ninety ninety-five percent of them were from Shriners there are so many people and so many um groups of guys that that came and helped and it was more than anybody could ever ask for everyone within our jurisdiction of our brothers here and our felt Shriners reached out to Kurt and we made what was a very terrible situation there a lot just a little bit more comforting it wasn't expected but they took care of me because that's what we do

You want to be a trying to do what's your name John Road let me see people that we have up here that are my brothers and are all my fellow Nobles they're people that I do business with they're the people that I grew up with people that I know from within my community and the beauty of being a Shriner you can go anywhere in the world and you've always got a friend and you got a brother you you walk in and you know you have a family there it's something that you can do that you can experience true Brotherhood.
