Cubmaster's Minutes

Keeper of the Earth
Cub Scout Program Helps 2004-2005, page 3 August
The Cubmaster may be dressed in outdoor gear such as a flannel shirt or down vest, or perhaps just steps forward in a quiet moment while the fire is burning low.

In 1852, Chief Seattle wrote a letter to President Polk concerning the sale of land. He stated, “This we know: The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

Today, we must remember that we are simply keepers of the earth not owners and the earth will only be as good as we make it.

As Cub Scouts and Good Citizens, we should always leave an area we use better than we found it. As Cub Scouts and Scouters, we need to do our best to do our duty to our county, to appreciate our earth, and to be prepared to care for it.

Lord, Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting said, “Honesty is a form of honor. An honorable man can be trusted with any amount of money for other valuables with the certainty that he will not steal it.” When you feel inclined to cheat in order to win a game, just say to yourself, “After all, it is only a game. It won’t hurt me if I do lose.” If you keep your head this way will often find that you win after all.
