              A Scout is Kind

 A Scout knows there is strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. Kindness is a sign of true strength.

To be kind you must look beyond yourself and try to understand the needs of others; take time to listen to people and imagine being in their place. It should never be difficult to show kindness to those in need and those who cannot defend themselves. What can be harder is being kind to people you don't know or with whom you disagree. We live in a world that has more than its share of anger and fear. Extending kindness to those around you and having compassion for all people is a powerful antidote to the poison of hatred.

  If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. - Dalai Lama

  Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It's not.  - Dr. Suess
