​Boy Scouts Made Me The Man I Am Today, Here’s How

In this sixth day of Kwanzaa, our focus is creativity (in Swahili it is Kuumba), but is explained this way:

To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

A while back I read this great  blog post by Wes Seiler, who is a BSA alumnus and writer for one of the top tech blogs, Gizmodo’s Indefinitely Wild.

The article made my day! So I’m sharing it with our readers, especially as an example of a Scouter who does what he can, the way he can, to make our community more than it was through his creativity.

He wrote: “It’s been 15 years since I was a Boy Scout and, by all accounts, I’m now a grown man. But, the impact the organization had on my life is still evident in my daily life. Here’s how.”

We have moved the rest of this article to the Voice of Scouting, click here to read it.
