    Smile Be Prepared: Girl Scout Motto

    "Be Prepared" is the Girl Scout motto. Being that I am an old school Girl Scout I put the motto "Be Prepared" in my heart. I joined them to learn about prepping and to get my first aid certification. I also worked to receive many other badges; sewing, cooking, edible plant identification, gardening, farming, animal identification, camping ect...
    I felt that being a Girl Scout would help me in my quest to be a free and healthy person even way back then and I took my girl scout activities very seriously.
    I have always included my Girl Scout affiliation as a part of my credentials. I went all the way thru the Girl Scout program. I received a scholarship for my studies.

    I want to encourage anyone who is a parent of a girl to consider getting them involved and help shape the future generation of women. There are many employment and volunteer positions available all over the country.

    Below I have copied the Girl Scout creed:


    Girl Scout Promise
    On my honor, I will try:
    To serve God and my country,
    To help people at all times,
    And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

    (While saying this, hold up the 3 middle fingers on you left hand)
    Girl Scout Law
    I will do my best to be
    honest and fair,
    friendly and helpful,
    considerate and caring,
    courageous and strong, and
    responsible for what I say and do,
    and to
    respect myself and others,
    respect authority,
    use resources wisely,
    make the world a better place, and
    be a sister to every Girl Scout.

    Girl Scout Motto
    Be Prepared
    Girl Scout Slogan
    Do a good turn daily.

    I glad when I was a Girl Scout we honored God and our country.

    I have decided to check into this by finding a volunteer position. I think it only takes one person to change something.

    I say respect everybody equally, until they give you a reason not to. Authority gets no special protections in my book.

    I find that it is much easier to under mind authority if it appears you are cooperating.

    Authority deserves a very slight deference because that makes civilization possible but it should lose it as soon there is any reason to suspect it.
