Closing: Dominoes

Author:  GSLC

Preparation: Hold up a box of dominoes.

Narrator or Cubmaster: Does everyone know what these are? Right.
This is a box of dominoes. Imagine that each one of them is a Cub Scout. Have you ever lined them up on a table so that they are standing on their ends? They stand up straight and tall, but as they go through life, there will be winds that try to knock them down.
It doesn’t take much to make the dominoes start to fall. And yet, it only takes one domino to stop the entire row from collapsing.
Perhaps the Cub Scout relies on the support of a family member, his den leader, Cubmaster, teacher, or another relative to help him stand tall. Or perhaps he uses what he has learned in Scouting to move out of the influence of drugs or a friend who tells him that shoplifting is OK.
Or perhaps all the dominoes band together for strength in numbers so that they can’t be knocked down.
Scouting will help you remain standing tall and proud just like these dominoes.
