As FFA members we have recited the creed many times. For those of you who don’t know the first sentence in the creed that was written by E.M Tiffany states “I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds.” This sentence sets off the statement that FFA members will look to and apply in their everyday lives.
There is a competition devoted to the presentation and speaking qualities of this beloved creed. The creed is taken to heart by many students and adults all over America. From believing in leadership from ourselves to less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; we’ve learned to believe in different things through adopting the creed into our own lives.
Back to the beginning is the quote of the future of agriculture. When we say those beginning words it starts our minds to what we have memorized as our belief system. While we believe in the future of agriculture we believe that we are the future of agriculture. We are the future of this growing industry that is planning on feeding the growing population.
As the next generation of agriculturalists, we are focused on the problems that have faced the past generations. We are the most advanced, we have the most progressive technology to work with. It is possible that this generation will be able to help stop world hunger. Generations have been working towards this goal for years and so 600,000 of us should be able to contribute to finding a solution to this problem.
We need to live up to the words that were given to our beloved organization by E.M Tiffany. We need to show the world and society that we are the future of agriculture. We need to show them that we believe in a faith born not of words but of deeds
