Now, Scouts, don't answer this question out loud, but how long has it been since you said, "Thank you, Dad." Sometimes it’s easy to take our fathers for granted. I suppose it might be awkward to try to say - in words - "Thanks Dad, I appreciate everything you do for me - and with me." And of course, if we merely said those words and stopped there, they'd be a pretty empty kind of thanks, wouldn't they? I wonder just how a fellow can go about saying thank you to his father and mother. The best way that we can show our appreciation is by making our parents proud of us, happy over the kind of fellows we are and happy over who we are trying to become. No matter what else we do as a gesture to show appreciation on Father's Day, we certainly want to do our very best to be the kind of fellows that our dads can be proud of all through the year and beyond. Happy Father's Day to all of our dads!

Flag Day is June 14th

Why do we celebrate Flag Day on June 14th? Because it was on that day in 1777 that our nation got its first official US Flag. The Continental Congress which made the laws in those days specified that the flag would have 13 stripes, alternating red and white, and 13 white stars on a blue field. 
Our flag was born very soon after we became an independent nation, and millions of people have fought for the flag as our symbol of freedom. 
That's why I hope your family owns a US Flag, and will fly it proudly on Flag Day and on other appropriate days through the year. In that way, we can show our pride as Americans and our determination to live as free people.

"When your values are clear, your decision making is easy." Roy "Walt" Disney

Think about this simple phrase from the creator of Mickey Mouse. This guy built an entertainment empire on a cartoon character. His values shine through in all his movies, and those made after his death. Honesty wins, evil goes down to defeat, and people live happily ever after. You may think those are just fairy tale endings, but not really. What are the values showing in the films? Anything ring a bell? How about the Twelve Points of the Scout Law? These are good basic values on which to base your life. When you say the words, don’t just recite them, internalize them so that they become a part of you. This gives you a strength of character you would otherwise lack. Once you have made these values a part of you, you can face difficult decisions easily. If someone offers you drugs or alcohol, you can easily say no. It doesn’t matter if “everyone” is doing it, YOU are not everyone. You can make the right decision for YOU, regardless of what others may be doing. And it’s so simple. If you break something, own up to it immediately. Lying about it won’t help resolve the situation. I know that if your parents are like me, they appreciate a direct answer, and there is no punishment involved. When your values are strong, your whole life is easier. Think about it.
