"Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent
alliances with any portion of the foreign world.."

in violation of our laws is a serious national problem
detrimental to the interests of the United States." -

never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It
does so because honor is, finally, about defending those
noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if
it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean
social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution,
or as always, even death itself. The question remains:
What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What
is worth living for?" -
William J. Bennett in a
lecture to the U. S. Naval Academy, Nov 24, 1997

Boy Scout Oath / Promise
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake and morally straight.
Note that the Boy Scout Oath has
traditionally been considered to have three promises. Those three
promises are delineated by the semicolons in the Oath, which divide
it into three clauses. The three promises of the Scout Oath are,
* Duty to God and country,
* Duty to other people, and
* Duty to self
DUTY TO GOD AND COUNTRY: Your family and religious leaders teach you
to know and serve God. By following these teachings, you do your
duty to God.
Men and women of the past worked to make America great, and many
gave their lives for their country. By being a good family member
and a good citizen, by working for your country's good and obeying
its laws, you do your duty to your country. Obeying the Scout Law
means living by its 12 points.
DUTY TO OTHER PEOPLE: Many people need help. A cheery smile and a
helping hand make life easier for others. By doing a Good Turn daily
and helping when you're needed, you prove yourself a Scout and do
your part to make this a better world.
DUTY TO SELF: Keeping yourself physically strong means taking care
of your body. Eat the right foods and build your strength. Staying
mentally awake means learn all you can, be curious, and ask
questions. Being morally straight means to live your life with
honesty, to be clean in your speech and actions, and to be a person
of strong character.
