42. My father was a Mason
Edited on Tue Apr-04-06 05:23 AM by malaise
When I first left home I was often amazed that his brethren across the globe went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable. I didn't even know these people but they were very kind to me.

I remember when he needed eye surgery, I visited him and my mum in England at the rather well equipped Royal Masonic Hospital in London. They also had a nice bed and breakfast for wives and children to be close by. I was quite shocked because I had no idea they had their own hospital.

They really are a powerful network. I have never met an unemployed Mason.
Edit - add.
