To me, being a Boy Scout means a lot, it means I have to do my best to live by the Scout Law and the Scout Oath. The Scout Law is, “A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.” Then the Scout Oath is “On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” Now that I am an Eagle Scout I really have to do my best to live by these codes of the Boy Scouts. Everyday I try to live by the Motto and Slogan. The Scout Motto is Be Prepared and the Slogan is Do a Good Turn Daily. These two, in my mind, are very important to scouting because every Scout can do these two things everyday.

The Scout Law is a series of words that every scout tries to live by everyday.
A Scout is:
Trustworthy: To me this means no matter what a Scout can trust me with anything and everything.
Loyal: This means that a Scout will be loyal to his friends and his family.
Helpful: A Scout is helpful when ever and however he can.
Friendly: A Scout is friendly to everyone without judging them first.
Courteous: A Scout is polite to everyone no matter what.
Kind: A Scout is nice to everyone he meets
Obedient: A Scout obeys the law of anywhere he goes.
Cheerful: A Scout is always in a good mood.
Thrifty: A Scout is Smart with his money.
Brave: A Scout always stands up for what he think is right even though it may not what everyone is doing.
Clean: A Scout always has a clean mind and body.
and Reverent: A scout is excepting of all races and religions.
A Scout may not be able to follow these laws all the time, but can do his best to do them everyday.
The Scout Oath is like the Scout Law but has its own standards. It is like the Scout Law because it is also what Scouts strive to do everyday or to the best of their abilities. I am just going to break down the Scout Oath so it is easier to understand.
“On my honor”: A Scout is promising
“I will do my best”: To do everything they can
“To do my duty to God and my country”: To do what he thinks is right for God and his country
“and to obey the Scout Law;”: To try to follow all the points of the Scout Law
“To help other people at all times;”: To help other people when ever he can
“To keep myself physically strong,” : To stay physically healthy
“mentally awake, and morally straight.”: To stay mentally healthy and stay on the path that he knows is right
