scouts-l Mail Archive for June of 2000: Who and What?
Sun Jun 11 2000 - 22:41:05 CDT
I hae been watching the male -vs- female thread with some interest.
Truth be known, I watch alot of the threads here but dont respond a
But this one has sparked a thought in me that I often have as I shake
my head at some of the goings on around this virtual campfire.
Who are we doing this for?
Do we argue so strongly on these issues for the betterment of the boys
or do we do it to get something up on another person?
If we teach our boys to uphold the 12 points of the Scout Law, then
shouldnt we, as their leaders, read our own posts, both in public on this
list and the private ones we send to make sure that we, as leaders are
following the same guidelines in our own lives?
I am in this Scouting program for the boys. I signed on to help my sons
and the other boys that I become involved with to grow up to be
"Physically strong and morally straight". That is what I am here for.
What are you here for?
