Cheryl has an excellent point when she says that one way
out of this whole knot confusion is to do away with the little
things in the first place!
This thread is starting to border on the ridiculous. What
difference do all of these knots and medals make in the lives
of the young people we are all supposed to be helping? I
was under the impression that our greatest reward SHOULD
be when the kids we are working with grow into adults with a
healthy outlook on life and an ingrained sense of what it
means to help others and be fair to all.
But then, I may be just a wee bit old fashioned in thinking that
B-P was someone who would not wish us to be niggling over
where the cussed little things go or how many of them you
should wear at one time.
Since everyone seems to have a different version of what the
rules are for wearing the knots and medals, why not just leave
the things in a drawer or on a wall at home (that's what I do).
After all, what do you feel when you compare a scrap of cloth
to service well done for another?
