Are You an Active Member?
Are You an Active Member?

Are you an active member?

The kind that would be missed?

Or are you just contented

That your name is on the list?

Do you attend the meetings

And mingle with the flock?

Or do you stay at home

To criticize and knock?

Do you take an extra part

To help the work along?

Or are you satisfied

To only just belong?

When the business comes around

Do you pretend you're sick?

And leave to work to just a few

Then talk about the clique?

Think this over, member,

You know right from wrong.

Are you an active member,

Or do you just belong?

In my experience their are a fair amount of people who are content with just putting their name on the list and not doing much more than that. Yes these people are most likely great people but do they have a true passion for scouting can be questioned. Let me close on this note, "Are you a person that sits back and lets others do the work or can you say that you are truly a active member" Being active requires work and dedication. Here is my philosophy if you are going to do something, do it to the best of your ability because of the fact that you only get to do that specific task, at that specific time once. Basically do something like their is going to be no tommorrow to look forward to.
