Greater St. Louis Area Council
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.
