Today February 8, 2008 is the 98 birth of the Boy Scouts of America. so happy Birthday, BSA. I think that today it is important to remember that without the good turn of the unkown Scout to William Boyce, then scouting may have never made it to the United States, yeah it probably would have eventually but who knows how long it would have taken. Remember when you are thinking about the Scout Slogan "Do a Good Turn Daily" don't just let it be words in your daily life, do it. You have the power to make a difference in someone else life and who knows you could have just helped next Albert Einstein or political leader or just a average joe that could end up making a difference in the world because you helped them get through one more minute of one more day. A good turn doesn't have to be a all day affair but it does require a little time. This little time can be as small as one minute. Yeah I know that a minute in the big scheme of things seems pretty small but the truth is that a minute can mean the difference between success and failure and life and death. A minute can destroy the world, if that person is not brought into a positive light. We are their to bring a positive light into the world and let it shine brightly throughout our lifetime.
Yours in Scouting Service
