America is a Beautiful Word (alt)




Personnel: Narrator and 7 Cub

Equipment: Each boy holds a card with a letter of “AMERICA” on it.  Flip card over and draw a picture with the same letter illustrating the description below.

Narrator: What do you see when you look at the word AMERICA?  What mental picture do the seven letters create in your mind?

The “Capital A” suggest our magnificent snow-covered mountain peaks, and the wigwam of the original American.

The “M” symbolizes the broad shoulders of our pioneer, shoulder-to-the-wheel pushing our frontier westward; broad shoulder swinging axes, building a nation.

The “E” might be the lariats of the cowboy riding the plains, lariats of Kit Carson or Buffalo Bill.

The “R” is a man with outstretched arms in friendship and cooperation toward all who love freedom, justice and peace.

The “I” represents the individual American with his right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The “C” is a bent boy from which an arrow has just sped toward the heart of mankind's greatest ideals.

The final “A” is a man on his knees in prayer, symbolizing a nation which recognizes it's Creator and gives thanks for His blessings.

Narrator: Yes, America is a beautiful word!
