Sam Houston Area Council

I CAN...Stand tall, in my heritage and believe fully in America!

I CAN…strive for the highest pinnacle - or any other spot I so choose - it is my decision, to be freely arrived at!

I CAN...worship at the church of my choice - read whatever books, articles, or newspapers 1 choose - select my own home, friends, job and associates!

I CAN...sleep peacefully - free from the fear of midnight persecution - secure in the protection of my rights!

I CAN...fail as well as succeed - this is true freedom!

I CAN...shape my own destiny - have my visions realized - achieve anything I really believe I can!

I CAN...fail and still be counted a man - gain strength and experience through mistakes - lose it all, and start over again as many times as my spirit is willing - until my dreams are reality!

I CAN...grow as large as my dominant aspirations - be as big as I am willing to pay the price to become!

I CAN ...own my own home - start a business - invest in my future - climb to the stars by constructing my own staircase!

I CAN...compete and receive in direct proportion to my efforts - thank others for assistance in my success - but look only to myself for my failures!

I CAN...raise my family in freedom - and freely change homes, jobs, friends, tastes - location, vocation, and avocation - but, most importantly - I can change myself!

I CAN...because I am an American!


Sam Houston Area Council

Cub # 2:       I will use my ears to hear its sounds.

Cub # 3:       I will use my mind to think what I can do to make it more beautiful.
