Yes, consideration is human understanding; Political correctness is cold and
distant, perhaps a development of the times.
Interesting note on a similar issue. We are running a short leader training
over-nighter this weekend. A 7th grader (not a leader) asked the SPL to
attend. He has friends going as well as his older brother. The SPL asked what
to do; he really wanted to dump the problem on my lap. After telling the SPL
about the "correct" and logical solution: e.g. the boy is not a leader, and
should not attend. (expanded of course); I than told the SPL to follow his
heart. Need less to say, the boy will be attending and helping the SPL to
support the meeting. The Scout Law is consideration.
