I love the sense of pride I feel when I see the same sense of pride being modeled and learned and demonstrated by Girl Scouts. It makes my heart want to burst! I wonder how many of these girls will carry patriotic seeds into adulthood because of moments like these. I wonder how many of them will one day reflect on the values they hold and see the connections to their Girl Scout experiences. I wonder if volunteers get to hear how their influence shaped critical ethics or life decisions or daily integrity for the girls they lead. Amidst the laughter and the silliness, one finds these moments. I, for one, smile deeply every time I do.
P.S. Want to join? Volunteer? Donate? It's easy ... no matter where you are, start with girlscouts.org and enter your zip code. You'll be directed to the nearest Girl Scout council!
