Greater St. Louis Area Council

There are times when a man gropes for words and nothing seems to come. We get a little flustered taking tests, reciting poetry, thanking our leaders, etc. But, if we take our time the words for all those things soon come just as these words will come to help complete this message for you.

If you want to touch the past: touch a STONE.

If you want to touch the present: touch a ROSE.

If you want to touch the future: touch the life of a BOY.
