A Scout is Cheerful
"We must change boys from a 'what can I get' to a 'what can I give' attitude."- Lord Baden-Powell. Research has shown that belonging to a group or community gives individuals a sense of identity. In fact, psychologist James H. Fowler studied 5,000 people over 20 years and found that happiness benefits other people through three degrees of connection. No wonder Boy Scouts are cheerful!
