Watch the video. This is a great story from the CBS Early Show today, but watch and you will notice that CBS cuts away during the Pledge and the Oath right at the point when the Cubs would say God. Once might be an accident, twice is not.

What a nice story!
Last night at church a young Cub Scout received an award from our Pastor. The church was very crowded, and he was in the front row, so I couldn't see him, and I couldn't hear the award. I was a little irritated until Communion; and out of the corner of my eye, I saw my husband giving a "thumbs up" to someone who was heading down the aisle from the altar.
I glanced over just in time to spot the young Cub Scout, in full uniform, propelling his way to the back of the church in his wheel chair. My heart just stopped, and I honor the young man and all of his leaders for his courage in pursuing his goals despite his disability.
Scouting is wonderful!
Just read The Minds of Boys, by Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens.
It's a discussion of the modern science of brain differences between boys and girls, and recommendations for accomodating the different needs of boys as learners. And one of their recommendations (p 145) boils down to: scouting.

(The idea around which liberalism coheres is that NOTHING actually matters but PR.)
Nice story. But, to be perfectly accurate, the Arrow of Light requires that a Webelos scout earn a total of eight 'Activity Badges'. Craftsman is not even one of the required badges. Earning all twenty possible badges is a very special achievement. Most scouting councils have a special patch that is given to these most prolific badge earning scouts. My son is a 1st year Webelos and he will be working on these requirements as a 2nd year Webelos.
Scouting is the best.
