Little Ideas

When one looks back at the history of DeMolay, almost everything that we now hold dear started as a little idea. The order of DeMolay started as a club of 9 guys. That's a pretty little Chapter by today's standards. Frank Marshall wrote the ritual, by hand, in his front yard. That's a pretty insignificant place to create such an enduring piece of performance art. The first Chevaliers and Legions of Honor were created and given by "Dad" Land - not to create some long lasting piece of history, but to recognize those who helped to build DeMolay. Everything we do started as a simple idea that has been built up over time.

All of history is the same way. Take a look at this video from one of my favorite people - Adam Savage from the hit TV show Mythbusters.

As you think about your chapter and what you do in DeMolay, remember that you don't have to think big to make a difference.Some of the most important parts of our program started as little ideas that grew over time.
