This just popped into my head

Unread post by fools_gold »

from over a half-century ago:

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.

A Scout is:

Trustworthy
Loyal
Helpful
Friendly
Courteous
Kind
Obedient
Cheerful
Brave
Clean and
Reverent.

Be Prepared.

Do a good turn daily.

The Scout Oath, Law, Motto and Slogan.

And I didn't need to look any of them up.

I remember them from 60 years ago. (I received my Eagle Scout award in 1966.) I have tried to live my life according to those principles. I have failed a few times, but looking back, those concepts have led to a pretty good life.

I still have my Boy Scout Handbook from 1960.

It's not easy to become an Eagle Scout.

I know, I tried. I didn't make it.

Congratulations. Becoming one says a lot about you.
