The Lone Ranger Creed!
By: Fran Striker

“I believe that to have a friend,
a man must be one. 

That all men are created equal
and that everyone has within himself
the power to make this a better world. 

That God put the firewood there
but that every man
must gather and light it himself.

In being prepared
physically, mentally, and morally
to fight when necessary
for that which is right. 

That a man should make the most
of what equipment he has.

That ‘This government,
of the people, by the people
and for the people’
shall live always.

That men should live by
the rule of what is best
for the greatest number. 

That sooner or later…
somewhere…somehow…
we must settle with the world
and make payment for what we have taken.

That all things change but truth, and that truth alone, lives on forever. In my Creator, my country, my fellow man.”
