A Knights Code- A Long Journey- Part 3

"Defend the poor and help them that cannot defend themselves"

This is next part to the Knights Code and I think this fits very well with the Scout Law word of Help and the Scout Slogan which is "Do A Good Turn Daily". Both of these ideals in Scouting have to do with helping people. As Scouts we are called upon to serve those less fortunate on a daily basis. We as scouts should always be looking for a opportunity to serve and defend others. A Knights interpretation is that he should help the poor by providing service and to stand up for those who are not able to stand up for themselves. This knight intrepretation most definitely fits and matches what the Scout interpretation should be like.

Serving those less fortunate than you is not just to complete another requirement or move up in rank it should come from the heart and be a true feeling. Helping others is a very rewarding experience and should not be dismissed as something not worthy of your attention. Serving others is part of your duty as a Scout and should be incorporated into your everyday life as often as possible.

Yours in Scouting Service
