Phil, at Yankee Phillip, has this post about the Boy Scouts Camporee at Montpelier, the home of James Madison. I, for one, support the Boy Scouts and its mission. I also support the Scout Oath, which states:
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
This country would be better off if more adults took this to heart. I also believe the characteristics spelled out the in the Scout Law would vastly improve this nation.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean, and reverent.
Put your name in place of the word Scout. Do you possess these attributes?
