THE LONE RANGER'S CREED - WORDS TO LIVE BY!
As lived by the legendary lawman -

The moral code upheld by the masked man.

Print it off and keep it close. good words to live by...

-----

The Lone Ranger's Creed:

The moral code upheld by the masked man



"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."

Was the real Lone Ranger a former slave?

Was the real Lone Ranger Black? Ever hear of Bass Reeves? Read this review and decide.

“It seems that the real life inspiration for the Masked Avenger of the Western Plains may have been an amazing giant of a man who really was the fastest-drawin', toughest, smartest lawman ever seen in the Indian Territory--and he had been born a slave.

Bass Reeves was the name of this American hero, a name that has somehow been omitted from the pantheon of Wild West legends. But author Art T. Burton has sought to correct that oversight in the well-researched book, "Black Gun, Silver Star", published by the University of Nebraska Press.

Reeves was a Deputy U.S. Marshall working out of Fort Smith, Arkansas in the years just after the Civil War, when the Indian Territory in what would later become Oklahoma was a no man's land of desperados, horse thieves, murderers, and outlaws. Reeves' career thus occupied the same time and space as that of the fictional Rooster Cogburn of True Grit fame. But Bass Reeves did in real life what John Wayne only play-acted at, and he did it in a way that combined elements of a number of fictional characters that would later loom large in our imaginations.

Like the Lone Ranger, Bass Reeves would sometimes employ clever disguises as he sought the wanted men who haunted the Indian Territory. He learned from the Indians how to make himself look smaller in the saddle (he was 6'2" at a time when the average man was considerably smaller) and would adopt the clothing and mannerisms of the outlaws themselves to take them by surprise.
According to Burton, Reeves also sometimes gave out silver dollars as calling cards (as opposed to the silver bullets of a certain masked man) and often rode a powerful white or grey horse. He was also often accompanied by an Indian posseman as he made his way through the dangerous wilderness that was this lawman's "beat". Burton also points out that many of those arrested by Reeves served their time in the Detroit federal penitentiary. And it was in Detroit that the Lone Ranger was first created, as a local radio show. So was Reeves at least partially an inspiration for the Lone Ranger? Burton suggests it might be so.

The "United States Army RANGER Creed":

The Creed

Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of the Rangers.
Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than any other soldier.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well-trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.
Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.
Rangers Lead The Way!!!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25050963


My parents were raised during the depression, they lived through WWII and they were some of the most generous, optimistic and self sufficient people I know

they didn't believe in debt...if they didn't have cash, they didn't buy it . If they had cash, they were quick to help neighbors, friends and even strangers far away who they heard were in trouble

they didn't need much, and they were raised before it was cool to be cynical and hate your own country.

They weren't cynical about love, and once they got married they tried to stay with the same person even if times got hard.

They really did believe in credos like that Lone Ranger one, even when they were 80 and 90

I do not mean that there aren't good people now, but not a generation with that simplicity of needs, that faithfulness, that lack of cynicism....
