Take a Look at Yourself Minute
This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
Hang a small mirror on the wall in a place where the scouts canít see it, but can all line up and file past it, like around a corner, or behind the stairs.
Or, have an adult hold the mirror.
Youíve probably all seen the photo gallery on our troop web site (or the troop scrapbook). We've taken a lot of pictures of all you guys at the campouts and events this past year.
As I was looking through those pictures, I was thinking about how some scouts seem to lead more than others and some seem to do more of the work.
I spent a lot of time figuring out which scout I felt could have the biggest impact on his patrol and this troop.
I took into account his rank, the things he has done, and the opportunities he has ahead of him to make a positive influence on other scouts.
It was a difficult choice, but I believe Iíve identified the one scout that can really, really make a huge impact. Iíve hung his picture on the wall over there so you can all get a look in a minute.
Now, IF this scout takes to heart the 12 points of the Scout Law and honors the 3 parts of the Scout Promise Ė duty to God and country, helping others, and improving himself Ė thereís no telling how much he can accomplish. I just hope he can take a good, honest look at himself and see his own potential.
So, scouts, line up here and QUIETLY, with no talking at all please, file past the picture and back to your spot in the circle.
