>knowledge, understanding, and respect, he was able to notice five other
>brothers whom possessed the awareness of their peoples predicament. He
>assembled these five men together and assigned them all positions so that
>each individual has his own responsibility in the movement to remove our
>people from such senseless struggles and deaths.
> These men held positions of the " First Man ", " Second Man ", "
>", " Sergeant of Arms ", and " Movement Advisor ". The supreme influence
>known as " Supremo ". Together the six men were proud, for they were
>who had the honor to take the responsibilities for their own kind, and
>therefore, latino's who were/are " KINGS " and " QUEENS ".
> With the five men of rank, the Supreme Man sat at the round table to
>to the five men. The Supreme Man then gave the by-laws to his council of
>five. The Supreme Man gave five principles which were given to his council
>alluded sentences. It went like this, pointing to the Second Man, he said;
>The first principle is respect". Our respect must be pure in our heart and
>seen by everyone. Pointing to the Sergeant of Arms, he said; " Honesty is
>second principle and it should be heard by everyone. We will spill our
>before we break our word". Pointing this time to the First Man, he
>our third principle is " Unity", and the people will smell the sweat pour
>from us because of hard work to bring this unity from darkness. Pointing to
>the Movement Advisor, the Supreme Man said, " As the sun sheds light on
>earth, the taste of "knowledge" shall shed light on our nation. Pointing to
>the last council member, the Warlord, the Supreme Man said; " Our fifth
>principle is indeed important, because once it is felt, it becomes
>as the grass and it creates desire for the rest of the principles, that
>principle is "love". So the council of five set out and in turn imposed
>laws and principles in the form of lessons and prayers to the people. The
>people of the Latin Nation obeyed the laws set forth and applied themselves
>to the lessons and teachings of the council to change their lives. The
>did not stop, but they did slow some. The peoples struggles has changed and
>the people now live a righteous life.
> Sometime later, the Supremo past away. To honor him and the strong
>unbreakable bond he created, the five men presented a "Crown of Gold" to
>people of the " Latin Nation ". It had five points holding five black round
>jewels to represent the round table and the teachings of a man with a

>CODE OF SILENCE
>In Greek mythology, the god of Love once offered a rose to the god of
>as a bribe to keep the god from disclosing the weakness of the other gods.
>the middle age a rose was customarily suspended from the ceiling of a
>chamber. The members of the council pledged themselves not to reveal what
>they had discussed in the room.
>Today, we have adopted the rose as the emblem of our profession; this rose
>shall be "black" in color to signify the respect we hold for this "code of
>silence". This rose reminds us that only a fool babbles while a wise man
>listens. That the sun will warm your bones. That the rain will clear your
>spirit. That the light (knowledge) will show you the way. Whereas darkness
>(ignorance) will show you no path. That boldness will enlarge your heart,
>sadness will open your soul. Bite your tongue when tempted to criticize or
>gossip. But shout from the roof tops when credit is due.
>Admire ambition, for it will inspire you. Love failures, for they will
>you. Kings are human. The rich are lonely. The brave are divine. The poor
>many. The young hold faith and the old hold wisdom. Silence is a virtue.
>power of un obstructive things to make this broken world whole again.
>is original and self evident. Like other basic virtues. Like love and
>and death, and life itself. Silence is the first born, for it envelopes the
>other basic virtues.
>Love, loyalty, and death. You must honor this code of silence with all of
