What would the world today be like if everyone was a scout?
Imagine every single person living the oath, motto, and law of a scout.
For starters, had the Executives at BP been in scouts; would there be the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico right now?
Maybe...but if they practiced "Leave No Trace" or were "prepared" then it might not have been as catastrophic.
If more people were scouts; would we have more environmentalists or conservationists available?
We might not have the endangered species list or issues with global warming and issues with pollution.
Political leaders should learn to practice "Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, and Friendly" and we might not have the border wars and conflicts we have today.
If everyone were a scout and followed the fundamental principles of scouting to be prepared for the "game of life;" we would certainly be having fun while living it.
Baden Powell would certainly be smiling if we were all scouts.
