Our American Heritage
Posted On: 2021-01-07

Personnel: 8 Cub Scouts
Equipment: Small American flags, cue cards
Arrangement: Cub Scouts in uniform stand in a straight line with each holding a small American flag.
Cub #1: I am the symbol of the living America, the badge of its greatness, the emblem of its destiny.
Cub #2: I am faith.  It is I who keep men mindful of their priceless heritage, life, liberty, and the right to pursue happiness.
Cub #3: I am hopeful.  I represent the land of promise wherein, already, man's loftiest dreams have approached closer to realization than ever before on this earth.
Cub #4: I am life.  Each strand and fiber of my being is a memorial, dedicated to the sacrifices of all those strong men and steadfast women who have lived and died in the nation's service, that it might live forever.
Cub #5: I am tolerance.  So long as I shall wave, all people under my protection may freely worship, think, write and speak, undaunted by the shadow of fear.
Cub #6: I am justice, tempered with mercy.  For I am a friend to the oppressed and downtrodden of every land.
Cub #7: I am a sign of the future.  I wave over schools throughout the nation and in them, the nation's future is molded.
Cub #8: I am the flag of the United State, the last, the best hope for peace on earth.
