Freedom Is...

STAGING: After flags are advanced in usual manner and Pledge of Allegiance is repeated, a Cub Scout reads the following:

Freedom is a breath of air,
Pine-scented or salty like the sea;
Freedom is a field new plowed
With furrows of democracy.

Freedom is a forest,
Trees tall and straight as men!
Freedom is a printing press,
The power of the pen!

Freedom is a country church,
A cathedral's stately spire;
Freedom is a spirit
That can set the heart on fire!

Freedom is a man's birthright,
A sacred, living part;
pulse beat of humanity,
The throb of a nation's heart!
