The Boy Scouts of America has made the decision to allow girls to join, a most historical decision.
There are disagreements from the Girl Scouts, but I believe we live in a different world now. Don't we have women in the military defending our country next to men?
Scouting teaches young boys and girls the importance of serving their community through acts of charity.
May the good of scouting survive all these changes for the many that need what scouting has to offer.
