Here is a role model for you…
“Of courage undaunted, possessing a firmness & perseverance of purpose which nothing but impossibilities could divert from it’s direction, careful as a father of those committed to his charge, yet steady in the maintenance of order & discipline, intimate with the Indian character, customs & principles, habituated to the hunting life, guarded by exact observation of the vegetables & animals of his own country, against losing time in the description of objects already possessed, honest, disinterested, liberal, of sound understanding and a fidelity to truth so scrupulous that whatever he should report would be as certain as if seen by ourselves, with all these qualifications as if selected and implanted by nature in one body, for this express purpose, I could have no hesitation in confiding the enterprize to him.”
Thomas Jefferson, 1813,describing Meriwether Lewis.
quoted from the Stephen Ambrose book Undaunted Courage.
I can only dream that one day some one may something like this about me. Talk about Character.
What do people say about you? How do you want to be remembered?
Have a Great Scouting day!
