Closing
Greater St. Louis Area Council

 

Personnel: Cubmaster and six Cub Scouts

 

CM: I asked myself a question today. "What does it mean to be an American?" There were several answers, and they were all good. Being an American means I have a multitude of freedoms.
#1: Freedom to think and to say what I think.
#2: Freedom to worship as I please.
#3: Freedom to move ahead.
#4: Freedom to try, and freedom to fail.
#5: Freedom to stand up straight and to look the world in the eye.
#6: Freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

CM: These freedoms were not of my doing. They were here long be fore I was born. Our forefathers fought to win them. I have four guarantees that will remain. The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, my fellow Americans and me. No man could ask for more.
