This week, for an upcoming Eagle Scout Magazine article, I had the pleasure of speaking with Mohammed Al-Jumaili, who is apparently the first refugee of the Iraq War to become an Eagle Scout. I also talked with his Scoutmaster, Steve Bauer. Mohammed has a unique story, but Steve told me something that contains a bit of truth for all of us who are longtime Scout leaders. He said that on one of Mohammed’s early camping...[More]

Todays post comes to us courtesy of the Ted Talks. It is about how we think about charity and "The O Word". The talk is done by activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta who calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities.

Whatever happens, the best thing you can do is go with the flow.James Shepherd figured that out before his son’s court of honor and talked to his son about it. James...[More]

This is part three of a series written by Jon Melick in Quincy MA who is an Eagle Scout, Vigil in the Order of Arrow, and Assistant Scoutmater with Troop 20.
