DeMolay came into my life when I most needed it, as is true of all young men. The degrees made a great impression upon me, especially the DeMolay degree. The thing which may have been the greatest benefit of my DeMolay experience was the association with my peers who I respected highly, which influenced me to be like them. It has been a great influence in all of my life. I am especially humbled by the thought that the Office I now hold, at least symbolically, is that which was held by the last Grand Master of the original Templars - Jacques DeMolay.
