Passports To Other Lands Closing

When people travel to foreign countries, they have to ask their governments to issue them what’s called a passport.  A passport is a little booklet with your name and picture in it, along with several blank pages on which foreign border officials stamp the seal of their country when you enter. You can’t go into another country without your passport.  But did you know that every Scout already has a passport?  It’s not a little booklet, but a small purple patch that we wear on our uniforms, called the World Crest.  The World Crest is a symbol of brotherhood and good will the world over.  When you wear the World Crest on your Scout uniform, you remind yourself that you are a part of an organization that includes, but also goes far beyond, your own home nation.  The World Crest also reminds us that human beings should be respected and valued regardless of their race, color, creed, or place of origin.  You’ll still need a paper passport to visit foreign lands, but the World Crest allows Scouts to think of every person as their neighbor and friend.
