One Man's Thoughts on the Boy Scouts

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boy Scouts of America for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
When I was a kid, I lived in the inner city of Seattle.  Although my family was not well to do, I never went hungry, and I never went without.  My mother and father both worked a full-time job and were very busy just trying to maintain a home.  Both of my parents wanted me to enjoy being a child, and they wanted me to stay away from some of the things other inner city kids I knew were doing.  This is where the Boy Scouts of America became involved in my life.
We met in a local church, and our meetings were some of the best experiences of my childhood.  My scout masters were as interested in my education and my grades, as they were of teaching me all the different areas of scouting.  Going on Boy Scout outings was a lot of fun.  There are many great places to visit in Washington State, and as a Boy Scout, I visited a lot of them.  Earning merit badges was important to me.  It was as much fun as it was hard work.  I made a lot of life-long friends, and I am so thankful today for the wonderful people I had the opportunity to work with.
Today, I am a Dad.  Scouting was important to me, and I will encourage all generations to come to do one simple thing!  Be A Scout!  It can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!  If you are even considering it, check online and find a troop in your area.
