"HTWSSTKS" is an acronym with connections to the Masonic Temple. The letters stand for, “Hiram, Tyrian, Widow’s Son, Sent to King Solomon.” Freemasons study the story of Hiram Abiff (a.k.a. Hiram the Widow’s Son.) The story of Hiram Abiff begins with his arrival in Jerusalem, and his appointment by Solomon as chief architect and master of works at the construction of his temple. As the temple is nearing completion he is ambushed and demanded to share the secrets of a master Mason. Hiram refuses to divulge the information, and is struck dead. Hiram Abiff is still held as a symbol of loyalty.
