Transcript of The FFA Creed then...

The FFA Creed A Living History
I believe in the future of agriculture...
I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others...
in less need for charity and more of it when needed...
This first line of
the FFA Creed
says it all. New and old inventions are being improved daily enable to simplify our lives.
Improvement
Transformation
The first paragraph of the FFA Creed
sets the tone for the entire creed as a whole. It's driving acknowledgment of overcoming agricultural struggles definitely defines the true meaning of hard work and dedication.
..for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life...
The phrase, found in the middle of the second paragraph, emphasizes the meaning of coping with discomforts enable to better appreciate the joys of agricultural life. This is something that all americans had to endure throughout the years, but it seems like agriculturist have to endure it more often.

Discomfort
Joy
The Dust Bowl that occurred in the 1930s
was a devastating natural disaster that affected many Americans. The drought last for a little over ten years. Many Americans had to come together enable to survive this horrific time period.
Events such as the Dust Bowl have helped us appreciate the little things much more. Something as small as the birth of a healthy calf can be seen as a miracle to almost any agriculturist that has endured a discomfort in his or her life.
Think like a leader. Speak like a leader. Act like a leader. Agriculturist must be able to endure all the negativity that will surround them during their time of progress. There are many people around the world who despise change, or simply just don't believe that any further improvements are possible.
Confidence is key to the mentality of a good leader. After all one must believe in themselves before anyone else can believe in them. This is where the 'respect from others' comes in. Once this quality is endowed in a leader, success is almost guaranteed.
and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.
Charity
Many people see the word charity and instantly think of a hand out. I believe that charity is something we should show everyone and everything on this plant. It is helping those that need help but not expecting a free hand out. Farmers and agriculturists are some of the most charitable people out there. Most just never see it.
Texas FFA
Texas FFA is teaching it's members about charity. The organization started a program called "A New Day" to help with disaster relief for communities or FFA chapters that need assistance.
Currently Texas FFA and chapters across the state are working together to raise funds for West FFA to help build and gather supplies for their new facility.
The future
To me no words in the FFA creed give a better example of where we need to go as a society. We each need to do our part to move agriculture forward and to advocate for our cause and show that agriculturist are servant leaders.
Summary
The FFA creed serves as a road map to the American way of life, It shows where have been and points us in the direction of where we need to go. We must each decide which direction we will go and interpret Mr. Tiffany's words in a way that positivity affects our lives.
