The Computer World Is Changing

While the world is changing by leaps and bounds, let's not get too caught up in the change to leave behind the positive values of the past and present. Here's a reminder of the kinds of values that Cub Scouts hold dear.

C - Courtesy. Being polite, like holding the door for someone.

O - Obligations. Remembering that we have responsibilities, like doing our chores and our studies.

M - Manners. Remembering to say "please" and "thank you" to others.

P - Peace. Keeping control of ourselves and remembering the Golden Rule.

U - Upbeat. Wearing the smile that helps ourselves and others remember that things are really pretty good, no matter how bad they may seem.

T - Truthful. Being honest.

E - Eagerness. Being ready and willing to help others when they need our help, whether they ask us or not.

R - Respect. Remembering that God made us all no matter how different we are from one another and that we all deserve to be treated with dignity.

S - Sensitivity. Paying attention to other people's feelings and needs.

Sure, these letters may spell out "computer"—a modern day wonder. But don't ever forget that no matter how fast, how fancy, and how powerful these modern machines get, they'll never be as fast as the first "hello," as fancy as the first "You are special," or as powerful as the first "thank you!"
