Commissioners Corner #15

We teach our Scouts to tie knots, pitch tents, build fires and cook on them. We teach Youth to lead and be lead. We teach youth to stand up for what they believe in, but to join the group and make the best of it. To go along when the have been out voted. We do all these things that this movement is all about. But do we sell the basic principles to our Youth on a regular basis? Do we sell the Scout Oath and Law? I see more and more boys that can't even repeat it, even at Board of Reviews for the higher ranks.
How can you live it when you can't even say it? We as leaders need to work it into our everyday lives. We need to talk about it at our meetings and outings. Have the boys talk about what it really means at scoutmaster conferences and boards of review. Perhaps use it in skits at campfires. It is more than just a bunch of words. The Oath and Law are words to live by.
Would not this world be a better place if we all lived by these principals? Honor! Duty to God! Dut

The Tooth of Time
