I have earned honor, received honor, and it must be said that I have also acted dishonorably in my lifetime. I’m stepping into something that it would benefit me to acknowledge honors I would never have considered before, because I believe a name should announce who you are more than a title. My name is Zion, and for those who know me, I hope it means…that’s a friend you can depend on, that’s a man who is willing to go the extra mile and more, and that is a man that won’t ever believe a person can’t reach their potential, and I’ll believe in you. I know it means: I’ve walked roads nobody else has walked! I’ve made mistakes; I’ve made bad choices, but I’ve made GOOD choices that overshadow all the others!
I’m now a Doctor of Divinity! I don’t really care…but it does allow me to step into some volunteer opportunities that I couldn’t do otherwise…but I don’t want to be Dr. Zion…the honorable Zion is a much more attractive title to me, because it means to me that I am being recognized not for what I’ve accomplished but for who I am.
Honor is a part of my character. It has saved me more times than I can recite. The fact that I have been a very bad boy at times can’t be argued, but I always remembered I NEED to be this kind of friend; I NEED to be TRUE to what I believe; I NEED to follow through with this purpose; all of these testaments have allowed me to earn my honor…and my friends will testify to this, because they have been a part of me earning that.
I am the Honorable Zion Amoure. I know I’ve earned that! :-)
