I was thrilled to tears as I passively participated in this broadcast.I am proud to acknowledge the role that my parents played in helping me achieve the rank of Eagle. The Oath and Law have been guiding lights and the foundation throughout my life. I am truly a Life Scout; I want to live a Scout and to die a Scout.
Although an Australian citizen, and never having been a Boy Scout myself, all the same, I felt the spirit and honour of this auspicious occasion of the Churches association with the Boy Scouts of America, now over one hundred years! What an example to the free world that is! And good on President Monson too for being the example to the world over his many years, testifying of the 'goodness' that there is in the scouting movement and of its benefits to young men and boys !
It was an incredible program and I hope it will be repeated several times on BYU TV. It can also be seen at this website scouts100.lds.org.
There were many reminders of the generosity of the service of Scout leaders.
